    You guys and helmets. This little girls has parents for sure, let THEM worry about her safety. And try to appreciate how beautiful the horse is and how well she sits on it for such a young age.

    Cute picture of a cute kid and sweet horse...I'll go along with that...but perfect position? Not buying it. While her heels are down and her hands look good...nice line from elbow to bit....the rest is lacking. Sorry....rounded shoulders, feet out in front of her hips....I'm not going to touch the lack of helmet or that she's swimming in that saddle (oops...guess I did! )

    No helmet, Stallion, Toddler.

    How can this not be cute?

    I'm sorry but switch the horse to an uglier/underfed one, remove the kid's boots and we have a perfect CL ad.

    The kid's position is pretty good for her age.

    This goes to show that kid's naturally sit up, and have natural balance. Somewhere along the way it's lost, and not cultivated.
