She has been riding along with adults since she was about a year old, but she has been riding on her own since she was about Ellie's age. She started the bareback thing alot last summer (when she was five).
I think the bareback thing really does help their balance, but it has to be on the right horse. Chino is nice and wide, so he is easy to sit. :)
I love seeing kids ride also, that is why your other post inpired me to share. Kids have a lot less fear when they start out than an adult has when starting out :)
