Horsemanship Troop "C", 1937

Reel is a compilation of footage featuring displays of horsemanship and trick riding, a bull and horse jumping over a car, horses running in a field, a baby bear on a leash, deer, a horse-drawn sleigh in winter, and what appears to be a parade. Close to the end of the reel (and missing from the duplicate reel, which ends with the appearance of the bear) is footage of a personal appearance by B-western stars Ken Maynard and Tarzan the Wonder Horse.
