What's with the pulling up old threads? Spyder's original post was from *2008*; the kid in the video may be in kindergarten by now if he survived.

I didn't read everyones comments, sorry if I repeat something.

The obviously already mentioned helmet issue is crazy - the consequences of this could be extreme, such as death. Also if you look at the other video of him on the little brown pony - you see other kids with no helmets on, some with no shoes.

I think all of this video(s) is un-responsible. The kids are trotting around with no helmets, some with no shoes and no previous education - however they are trotting around with no leaders or anything. I do not like the way they are "held' into the saddle either, what happens if the pony fell, rolled or something else along these lines?

...and I just read the second page to find out its from 2008. Sorry guys!

Sir Success. Eventer.

Those parents are so irresponsible. That pony looks so mad, poor guy. He is an animal, not a car... Seat belt= safe in car, not on ponies.... Makes my heart break.

I used to work for a carnival, specifically doing pony rides. It was by far the most responsible setup I've ever seen. We had height and weight limits in place, and I had full rein to deny anyone. Bernice cared by far more about her ponies then about money. People would actually scream and complain because when it was 40 degrees celsius, all the ponies would get an hour break every hour (hour of rides, hour of quiet time). They were enclosed in a portable metal pen, and they were each individually led around by a handler to ensure our full attention. And I demanded parents walk with their children and HOLD them if they were under 2-3 years old. I actually had to get beligirent and kick people out at times because parents would be like "HE'S FINE, HE'S FINE!" as the kid is sliding off the flipping side and I'm doing the crabwalk shuffle trying to lead a pony and catch a kid at the same time.

/end rant

People are stoopid.
I actually went to a zoo once where they did pony rides, my son was 2 at the time and i was going to pay for a ride for him until they informed me that parents were not allowed to stay with their child during the ride! No pony ride for him lol I'm sorry but i'm not going to let some stranger(who's knowledge of horses i don't know) lead my kid around on a pony i don't know with me behind a barricade 10 feet away. I thought that was the most ridiculous thing i ever heard.

oh and as everyone already said over the 2+ years this post has been up, seat belts and horses are not a good combo!

The seat belt makes it even MORE dangerous. Period!

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

I checked out this ladies channel too.... They give new meaning to the stereotype that beautiful people are just DUMB! Her husband is a body builder and is absolutely gorgeous though... YUM. Most people are horse dumb though...the treadmill? probably not the best.. but SHAME on the people running that horse torture facility!

Children that young are the entire reason the basket saddle was invented!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
