  • Short Summary

    Crowds watch point to point horse racing in Leicestershire.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Leicestershire. 'Old English' Country people - from far and wide - come to see 'the Melton Hunt' over miles of typical hunting country."

    Leicestershire.

    Horses ridden away at speed. Crowds of people watch the racing. (It looks more like point to point racing than a hunt).

    Horses take jump. More jumps and more shots of the horses and their jockeys.

    Horses take water jump, one of the riders falls off. Good shots of the crowds lining the course. More shots of the race out around the course. Two horses cross the finishing line.
