    Its a little irresponsible. If I had my child riding a pony like that I would be holding her on and walking the pony. She could have very easlily slipped off the back, or the pony could have rolled over instead of just sitting there and rolled over that girl. The pony is very well trained but that girl dosent have a "spotter" anywere close enough to get to her if sometime happens.

    Its not like that was her first time riding and its her sister who put the video on youtube not her mom. I do not know them and I would have changed a few things but I do not find it unsafe. She was wearing a helmet and had a good grip on his mane the whole time.

    I'm with you. I'm all about starting them on horses early, but I just don't think a kid that young should be on a horse (even if it is a pony) without even a halter on, with no adult close enough to be able to do anything in the event of an accident. If I had a kid I'd be putting them on a horse from a very young age, but not alone like that.
    Yeah this is "cute", but it's not so cute to think about all of the things that could go wrong, and she's just so young.
    It would be much cuter if the pony was wearing a halter and there was an adult in the picture. Even with a super well trained horse like that, I'm sure that he spooks sometimes. He is a living thing after all.

    It's great that she's wearing a helmet, but what about the rest of her tiny little body? He may be a pony, but he could still crush her.
    Don't get me wrong, I hate when parents are super overprotective and coddle their kids as some people mentioned, but come on. This is a three year old. There has to be a line drawn somewhere.

    Although that was cute That whole time I was thinking 'Fix that helmet! Stand to the side little girl or he'll strike you! Hold on!'. A LOT of things could've gone wrong, but they didn't.
    When I'm older, I wouldn't let my kids do that. I wouldn't wrap them in cotton wool, its just there was a lot of things that could've gone wrong.
