TIMONIUMS HORSE SHOW Seventeen Classes Will Be Judged at Show Competition in Connection With. Meeting. TIMONIUM, Md., Aug. 25. The horse show at the Timonium Fair on Friday, September 5, is under the management of Major G. L. Stryker, a horseman of wide experience. Seventeen classes have been arranged, four for ponies, one for saddle horses, one for four-year-olds and under, suitable to become hunters, and the remainder including a military class, to be shown over the jumps. Class 16 for performance only will be over a special course, part of which is outside the regular ring, and in addition to money prizes to the first three a piece of plate will be awarded to the winner. Another spectacular class is that for hunt teams of three from any hunt club, including ladies, in the hunt uniform. In this event appointments count twenty-five per cent, general appearance twenty-five per cent, and performance fifty per cent, so that the smartest turned out team will have a big advantage. The Elkridge, Green Spring, and Harford hunts, and perhaps some out of state clubs, will exhibit their best hunters, most dashing riders and their picturesque colors, while the saddles, bridles, girths, extra "leathers," hunting horns, will be in keeping with the pink coats, velvet caps, dazzling white breeches, top boots, thonged crops and polished spurs of the riders. Entries to the horse show close Friday, August 22, with the secretary, M. L. Daiger, 523 Equitable building, Baltimore.
