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.
