Background: Main event on the final day, October 25, of the three-day International Indoor Horse Jumping show, Amsterdam, Holland, was the surprising victory of French Lieut-Col. Fresson on 'Grand Veneur', who won the Grand Prix of the City of Amsterdam jumping contest.
The stylish Parisian horseman, took the six hurdles without fault. British rider, Ted Williams on 'Pegasus' followed also with a faultless round, but after the obstacles were heightened, he lost ground to the Frenchman and came second. Third: Dutchman, Harry Wouters on 'Hubertus' with T. Wade from Ireland, on 'Dundrum', fourth.
Miss Pat Smythe of Britain was chosen best horsewoman of the show. Riding 'Carousel 111', she was placed 10th in the Heineken prize, a hunting competition. Later, again riding the same horse, she shared second place in the Remington prize, an event in which competitors had to clear as many obstacles as possible in 90 seconds.
Crown Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands visited the show during the early evening.
