As his horse runs away, a young Victorian lad flails his arms and legs after falling off the horse. With no saddle in sight, it would appear the boy did not have permission to ride the horse. With a little bit of editing work, this picture could also be used for a temper tantrum or a bucking horse. However you use these wonderful humorous images of children from the talented pen of Ida Waugh, they’ll be sure to add a bit of whimsy to your next creative project. It was included in the 1881 children’s book Holly Berries.
