As we know there are a lot of children who take riding lessons daily, participate in different competitions and are very committed to horse riding discipline. They have achieved beautiful performances but none of them comes close to the performance you will see in the video below.
We must say that there are a lot of things going wrong with it and nobody should try doing this kind of “show” because it’s very risky for both the girl and the horse. The girl is clearly underage and that makes it even more dangerous because she’s more vulnerable, and doesn’t have the right coordination and confidence.
There are several things she’s doing wrong: riding without reins, not wearing a helmet, riding on a hard surface(paved road), etc. Riding without reins absolutely increases the risk to a rider and a mature rider would never allow this thing to happen. It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to give your passion for horses to your children and transform them into professional riders, child safety around horses should perpetually be the most important priority.
We all know the advantages of owning a horse and how excellent teaching instruments they are for kids because working with horses grows confidence and encourages responsibility in children. But as we know there is nothing more important in this world than the children’s safety. We all acknowledge that it only demands one small slip to cause severe problems, so you should always be careful. Watch the video below for more!
