Nice pair.

I always enjoy seeing young riders do well.

No question that kid has guts and a good start....
But - I'm not sure what to think. Part of me is questioning the sanity of adults throwing a kid up on a big horse to jump that big.

I thought the same thing too at the start.....by the end of the clip I'd pretty much come to the conclusion that the kid was born in the saddle and probably raised by wolves! LOL!

I have no problem with that at all. Mine used to take horses to go check cattle on thousands of acres because that's what they were used to. It was simply their backyard. I know people whose kids can hop on good polo ponies and stick and ball all afternoon unsupervised because that's their life.

The youngster in the video is obviously familiar with the horse and jumping. And, he was supervised.

I'd be more worried about dropping my kid off at a large school for the day, or my teen being at a mall. Those things are unfamiliar to us.
