Storyline

This film was taken by special permission of Colonel Joseph Gerrard, 15th U.S. Cavalry, and shows an exhibition of bareback riding including jumping over hurdles, in which the men ride one, two and three horses, jumping over them, standing backwards, standing on their heads, in fact doing all sorts of inconceivable things. Next we are shown an exhibition of Cossak riding with saddles and stirrups. This is no less remarkable than the bareback work, and one scene, showing the men tearing down the field, picking up pieces of paper from the ground, is truly thrilling. Next we are shown some high jumping in which, after several attempts, a six-foot jump is made. The closing part of the film consists of a fancy drill by thirty-two men besides the color bearer and officer in command, who go through a series of evolutions, forming circles, squares, crosses, galloping in and out.
