Parents and children play horses

Victorian illustration to download showing a picture of parents playing at horse racing with their children in the nursery. The father, with a boy and a girl (and a doll) on his back, is going over a ‘jump’ – a stool. The boy holds the reins and a toy whip, and an older sister holds the little girl. In front of him a boy ridden by his sister has fallen at another ‘jump’, a cushion. His sister grabs at a tablecloth and dislodges the animals from a toy Noah’s ark. Behind, a girl leads a toddler riding on a toy horse on wheels; the toddler is held steady by the mother, who has a baby in her arms. It is clear that all, especially the father, are enjoying themselves.
