Lot Essay


"This, as the name implies, consists of a horse galloping round a ring, as at a circus. Standing upon the back of the horse is a fairy, who, as the horse passes under the bar, stoops and then jumps, clearing the bar in a most clever manner, alighting upon the horse's back and stands, balancing herself until the horse reaches the bar, when she again jumps, continuing to ride and jump until the horse stops."

Historical Note:

This was one of Britains most popular toys, and survived in the catalogue until 1915.
