• Short Summary

    Horse riders of the 4th Hussars are seen doing stunts in preparation for the Royal Tournament.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "Taking chances! - Some preliminary Royal Tournament 'try outs' by experts from the 4th Hussars. Filmed at York."

    York, North Yorkshire.

    Various shots show men of the 4th Hussars riding across a field and hitting a comedian on the backside with a stick; the man jumps up and down in outrage. He lies on the ground and one of the others on horseback rides past and snatches the clown's hat from his head. More 'stunts' as the soldiers hang off the sides of their horses and take jumps. The comedian has a go on a horse - he's quite annoying! He jumps about on his poor horse and makes it lie down while he is still on it, then lies next to the horse as if to go to sleep.
