Saddle Hill on the eastern margin of Mosgiel identifies Mosgiel and its history. Captain James Cook on his ‘discovery’ journey in February 1770 noted the hill formation as being like a saddle.  In the next century it was named by settlers as ‘Saddle Hill’.  It was also well known to local Maori: in their legend the taniwha known as Matamata wriggled down the Taieri river and died, to become the coastal hills ‘including Saddle Hill’. (Accessed 11th August 2015 from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ Mosgiel)
