  • Short Summary

    Amazing riding skills demonstrated prior to the Royal Tournament.

  • Description

    Item title reads: "For the Royal Tournament. Wonderful feats of equestrian skill by "soldier cowboys" of the 16/5th Lancers."

    Tidworth, Hampshire

    At some kind of horse show the army show off their skills at horsemanship with a fun display. A rider standing astride two white horses gallops towards camera and picks up something from the ground. A row of riders follow, with others standing up in their saddles also leaning right over to pick up something from the ground. Another jumps over a man playing a grand piano. Another rider leaps over a group holding an outspread blanket, others leap over a group sitting down to dinner at a table.

    Note: The leap over the piano and the table looks quite hilarious.
