honestly sure it might be a little rough and unheard of. but i'm gonna go against the majority here and say that if i trusted the stallion like i do my mare. then i'd put a kid on it. i put kids on my mare bareback like that grey stallion. and she's been properly desensitized so if the kid sneezed and kicked her flank.. dun dun dun! she'd stand there! so if he's had the proper desentizing he'd stand there too! sure he's a rip roaring crazy stallion but that doesn't make him any different temperment wize if he was properly raised and handled. and helmets are an individual thing. i ride without helmets and the 3-6 year olds that ride my horses ride without helmets! but thats only because that was their mothers choice.. and i know several stallions so well behaved you can ride bareback and in a halter with the stally's nose shoved up under a mare's tail and he wont think twice about it. and thats the way it should be. i say good on them for raising stallions the proper way. although i'll prolly get bashed a bit for all that ah well i stated my opinion lol.
