Manuscript sheet music for the instrumental piece titled 'All the trumpets: stand to your horses', composed by Herbert William Hamilton. This is a photocopy of the original sheet music and features the inscription 'With compliments of composer, Trooper Sevenbar, onetime trumpeter, 8th South Canterbury Mounted Rifles Regiment'. This piece has been written for brass band and has an alternate title of 'Stand to your horses'. It also features the dedication 'Dedicated to the NZRSA and the RSL of Australia'.

There are four versions of this music included with this item. The first is the piano accompaniment for the work which was arranged by Hamilton. The second is the brass band arrangement which was compiled by Frank Smith and performed by the Timaru Municipal Band, New Zealand. The third is a foolscap sized copy of the solo cornet part for the brass band arrangment. The fourth part is the individual instrument parts derived from the full brass band arrangement.
