Another National "first" will be the debut of the full-blooded Arab horse, historically one of the most glamorous of the equine world. One of the eight newly introduced classes for this breed is a mounted native-costume class, an event of sufficient color to rival the parade horse in his silver splendor and offer a change for those who tire of top hats and derbys. Competing in the Arabian divison will be Mrs. Arthur Godfrey, and Godfrey himself will present dressage exhibitions on his Arabian, Goldie.
And so through eight days, morning, noon and night, horses will jump, horses will parade, ponies will trot, and people will preen. On Tuesday evening, somewhere around 10, after a day of championships, the International teams will enter the ring for the last time, taps will sound, and another National will be history.
