  • Short Summary

    Gymkhana - various competitions for kids and their horses.

  • Description

    Various shots of horses being ridden over jumps.

    This is followed by an Alsatian dog jumping over one of the fences. This looks like a small gymkhana. Three horses race in and out of posts placed in the ground - they have to weave their way though them guided by their riders. High angle shot of the spectators.

    "A mixed melange to show your skill on a horse and speed on your tootsies - " Girls jump off their horses and pull them along by the reins. The girls then have to get something out of a bucket with their teeth (an apple?), climb back into the saddle and ride off. Various other races are seen.
