1940
  • Rate
In Tel Aviv, a horseback riding competition is held by the Jewish police settlement. The riders are waiting to start the race. With the sound of the opening race, the riders and horses begin to gallop through the field toward a second stop where the riders descend from the horses and try to hit the glass bottle targets. After a policeman has has hit the target, he gets back on his horse and continues to the next station. The judges sit alongside the shooting position and examine the participants. A crowd applauds and cheers at the police at their last stop: jumping (or show jumping) where the riders and horses cross different tracks of obstacles. Flags of Israel and Britain flying in the wind.
