|BOSTON HORSE SHOW|
First Prize For Irish Free State.
| The Irish Free State Army horses, Benea Dare and
Blarney Castle, mounted by Captain F. Ahern and Lieutenant J. F. Neylon, respectively, took the blue ribbon
in the event for officers' jumpers in pairs, which was the only military event on the second day's programme
of the Boston Horse Show.
They had only 4½ faults, despite the difficult rules of the Federation Equestre Internationale.
Thus in two days Irish Free State entrants have taken first, second, and third prizes. Captain Ahern, on Gallow Glass, having been placed second in the handy hunter class, and Captain D. J. Corry, on First Attempt, third in the officers' charger class on the opening day.
The Irishmen's brilliant success was well received by the ten thousand spectators.
