Source: Games for Everybody
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.
