This is a rough-and-tumble game for the boys, and must be played

either outside, or in a large bare room.

Sides are chosen, the big boys taking the small boys on their back,

carrying them "pick-a-back." The one carrying the boy is called the

horse, and the other the rider. The sides stand opposite each other

and when a signal is given, they rush toward each other, the horses

trying to knock down the opposing horses, and the riders trying to

dismount each other.

The game continues until a single horse and rider remain, and the side

to which they belong wins the game.
