    Titles read: "Ready For The Ring".

    Germany.

    Various shots show an 18-year-old circus rider in a paddock, teaching her horse how to do the nazi goose-step (yes!). She sits on the horse and the horse marches along like a German soldier. The horse canters about a bit (he looks like he enjoys this a bit better).

    We then see the girl with a white horse, pawing the ground and doing other tricks. The horse dances about and kneels down with the girl on his back.

    Good for illustrating abstract use of the goose-step! (Wonder why it never caught on with the nazi mounted troops?)
