Jane Worsfold and Mary Riddle

About this object

L-R: Jane Worsfold (6 years old) and her cousin Mary Riddle on Jane's horse Bosun. They are off to school at Kaiwaka. Mary was from Waipu, which had no school at the time, so she boarded with the Worsfolds family who lived on the Kaiwaka-Mangawai Rd.
They had no saddle so a sheepskin was covered by a sack which was kept in place by a sirsingle. The sack had holes cut on the side so they could put their feet in to keep warm and to hold on.
Bosun was also ridden by Jane's mother (Josephine Worsfold) when when she was going to school.
Jane married Roy Vaughan. Mary married Mr Onley.
