    Footage of troops wrestling on horseback.

  • Description

    Horseback, wrestling in British Army.

    Horseback wrestling. Title says, "....troopers find wrestling on horseback to be a change from drills. I should think so! Bizarre game; in which; just as it says; men on horseback try to wrestle each other off the horses. - several of these pairs go at it at once in a ring. Weird but funny. One man twirls lasso a few times; turns & ropes a horse w/ another guy on it. Rodeo CU Soldier coming out of pup tent. - - looks like a Boy Scout standing in FG by tent. Pan left; some other Army guys stand looking toward cam. Men leading horses across clearing - some of these guys are soldiers and some are dressed as civilians.
