  • Description

    From Henley to another open-air scene -- and it's this year's Metropolitan Police Horse Show and Tournament which opened this afternoon at Imber Court, Themes Ditton, in Surrey with the Novices Tent Pegging event in the Paddock. Grey skies and an cold drizzle kept crowds away, but well behaved police heroes entered for the Best Trained Horse Challenge Cup were unperturbed by the weather. They were also unperturbed by all efforts to upset their poise and control.

    Then the preliminary run off for the Sword, Lance and Revolver Competition. In this event the contestants engage a dummy with their swords as they go over the jump, and then fire at balloons as they jump -- a proceeding to which some of the horses objected.

    Another pegging competition was the last event this morning, but there were more contests this afternoon and the show continues tomorrow.
