Point-to-point racing and prize-giving, Hunter Trials, a Pony Club rally, and Clitheroe Show are some of the subjects of this colourful compilation of equine scenes. At Manor House near Blacko in Pendle, the sporting artist Lionel Edwards paints the filmmaker's daughters Rosemary and Valerie with their horses, and we see riders practising their horsemanship in the tranquil Lancashire countryside.
