A collection of material showing scenes of a rabbit hunting party, horse races (possibly at Goodwood?), and scenes of a mare and foal together in a paddock.


A hunting party is assembled on foot, in a lane with their dogs. A dog is then shown carrying a dead rabbit. At a race course (possibly Goodwood [?]) scenes around the paddock show the racehorses and jockeys before the race. Races take place and there are trophies for the winners. Scenes of the spectators include a sign for the bookmaker ‘Jack Swift’. A brief scene shows the weir at Pulteney Bridge in Bath. Various scenes then show a horse with her young foal. The foal stays close to its mother in the paddock. Scenes of a hunt with hounds follows [underexposed - not included in the online clip] before returning to the mare and her foal again.
