Sport 1973 29 mins


A rousing soundtrack by Carl Davis tops and tails this charming film for horse lovers. Sponsored by Midland Bank, it goes behind the scenes at a junior horse trail at Eridge, East Sussex. Taking place in early August, the event runs concurrently with an advanced trial - the last chance for selection to the British Olympic team for Munich. Post-Olympics, the film also takes a look at the Midland Bank Championship for the Golden Griffin Trophy at Cirencester in October, the final event of the year.
