  • Short Summary

    Children have fun with their horses and ponies at a gymkhana.

  • Description

    "Is there a boy or girl with soul so dead, Who never to him (her) self has said.... "I'd love a pony or a horse!"

    M/S of a group of youngsters riding ponies in a field - either a riding lesson or gymkhana. M/S of the young riders jumping a fence. "The five-year-old!" Small child stands on the back of a large horse. The toddler then sits on the back of the horse as it walks around in a circle tying its front legs in a knot - weird! The tot then makes the horse kneel down.

    "But, when they bring out the Pushball, what a game!" The youngsters play a game with a large ball as they ride around on their horses. Doesn't look like much fun for the gee gees. High angle shot of the game. The ball is about 8ft tall.
