Lena Partridge At the Livery 1960

10 mins United Kingdom

This charming film from Lena Partridge shows the activities of a pony club livery in the New Forest. We see riders of all ages setting off from the livery across a busy road after which we see a very small child riding her own little pony in the back garden. This is followed by the gathering of a hunt with hounds and various gymkhanas featuring cross-country events and show-jumping. We then see children at their own gymkhana and a couple of newly born calves delighting the family.

At Wessex Film and Sound Archive you can see and hear history, from late Victorian times to the present day, through moving images and sound recordings. The Archive contains over 36,000 film and sound recordings relating to Hampshire, the Isle of Wight, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, including film and tapes of local TV and radio.
