  • Description

    Britain's place as number one nation in the show jumping arena is being challenged.

    Following up their triumphs at the White City Stadium, London, the Italian riders are now claiming major honours in the current Dublin Horse Show.

    Following their recent victory in the Pembroke Stakes, the Italian team went on to claim first place in the Military and Civilian Jumping Competition.

    Riding against the strongest international competition on Thursday, August 8, Capt Piero d'Inzeo, one of the famous Italian riding brothers, won the event on The Rock.

    Germany provided second and third, Hermann Schridde taking the runner-up berth on Fugosa, and Alfons Lutke-Westhues finishing third on Ala.

    Among the competitors that our cameraman watched tackling the difficult course was Miss J. Harper of Great Britain; Mr.John Walmsey of Great Britain; Miss Dawn Palethorpe of Great Britain; Herr Hermann Schride of Germany; and the Marquis Lorenzo Medici.
