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
