just found out my 25+ year old mare will let a child sit on her back!!!

So first off when i bought her i was told she was 13, that was about 5-6 years ago. too bad her racing tattoo says she is at least 25 maybe older. anyway, i retired her from riding three years ago and i havent done much with her other than groom her and give her my love. earlier today i got an idea "maybe a small child could sit on her and i could lead her around" (she was a lesson horse before i got her so she likes kids) i got my 6 year old brother to come down and i held her while putting him up on her back, she perked up but didnt spook at all. i am so excited about this, this means she can have a job to do again :) does anybody have some tips ? thanks
