This kid totally freaks me out. I also started riding at a very young age and I would totally put my 3-year-old niece on a horse in a second, but something about this picture freaks me out. It think it's the fact that he's jumping. And that he doesn't look totally in control. And that his heels are up. He's clearly an awesome rider, but that pony is also probably a saint in pony's clothing.
