  • Description

    Aldershot, Hampshire.

    Shots at start of this item appear to be cuts / out takes. Shots are mostly same as those in the edited story - please see below for details.

    Edited story starts at 01:50:19. Title: "See these feats of Horsemanship at the Royal Tournament at Olympia - and help Service Charities".

    Panning shot follows galloping horse, a man clings onto the side of the moving animal and hauls himself onto the saddle. Panning shot of another galloping horse, the rider carries another man on his shoulders. Panning shot of a galloping horse, the rider dangles by one arm off the saddle. More similar shots, except these times the rider hangs upside down.

    Panning shot of a tableau of horses and their riders; some riders pose standing on their saddles, some horses sit on their haunches, others have their front legs resting on barrels. Two horses and riders gallop through through the tableau, jumping over a fence as they go. M/S of a horse sitting on its haunches, its rider sits in front of it. They horse bends its neck to eat a biscuit from the rider's mouth - erugh! C/U of a man leaning over his sitting horse, he feeds it a biscuit from his mouth - disgusting!
