Two New Zealand officers of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps are taking part in a horse show. They are showing their personal horses, or chargers, which appear to be heavy thoroughbreds. The horses have been unsaddled and are being inspected for their condition and conformation. The caption uses the term 'charger' which is a reminder of earlier wars which were led by a charge of cavalry. In the Western Front of World War I, the military horse was an anachronism, unable to move freely among the trenches of this very different type of war. [Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT IN FRANCE. New Zealand Horse Show. Chargers.'].
