I won't say much about the helmet because I have never worn one. BUT, if the kid is not old enough to stay on under his own power and steer and stop the horse himself, then they need to have someone leading the horse. I was on horses as an infant but I was always with my Dad. He would take me to warm up his show horses and sit me in the saddle in front of him. I got my own horse to ride by myself when I was 4 but I still had my fair share of falls. Bombproof or not, there is always 1 more thing that horses are scared of.

My neice has been riding by herself since she was 2 yrs old. But she can steer the horse by herself and things of that nature and someone is always right beside her. She is now getting ready to turn 4 in March and has her own horse and rides whenever she wants.. But we never straped her in the saddle. I, like so many of you, think that is the dumbest thing I have ever seen. And have to wonder what was going through those peoples head? Poor kid and poor pony.

That is my biggest concern also. The helmet I could almost understand because finding one that fits could be difficult. But if that horse spooked....I do not even want to think of what may happen then.

I'm sure they don't do it anymore, but when I was a kid (back in the dark ages ) it was common to see pony rides at carnivals and fairs. If I remember correctly the horses where on a lead that was attached to a horse walker though.
Our saddle club has an annual pony ride set up at a local festival but it is only with very settled older horses and with a lead rope.
