    The man playing the horn, is my late Father Ron Hill. It is a Coach Horn he is playing and he was Ring Guard at the Royal Windsor Horse Show from the the late 1950s, through to the 1970s. His Father George Ernest Hill (Ernie) was also a Ring Guard at the show and can be seen on another one of your films. The Ring Guards would signal to the riders, with a particular horn call, when they were required by the judges to trot, canter (speed up or slow down) and so on.
