Foal's First Footsteps 1935

6 mins United Kingdom

This charming film begins with a group of tweed-clad hunters assembling in a country lane before moving to a race course where horses and jockeys get ready to race. We then see a mare and her newly-born foal in a paddock. The foal is very excited by its new surroundings but never strays too far from its mother. Scenes of a hunt with hounds follow before we return once again to see the mare and her playful and inquisitive youngster.
