Aww!

She's so tiny she barely reaches the end of her saddle, but she still has so much skill.

Kids are incredible learners. They’re able to soak up information so fast, and they remember things incredibly well. It’s always amazing to see a young kid doing something that most adults would find challenging.

And that’s just what happened with one young five-year-old horse rider.

Time to let it all go on the course.

Five-year-old Kinsley and her seven-year-old morgan draft cross mare Ruby impress every spectator as they take their turn through the 2’6′ jumping course to the song “Let It Go” from the soundtrack to the movie Frozen.

At first, when you start watching the video, it is a little nerve-wracking to see this tiny child on such a big horse.

But as the video continues, you see how much the child and the horse are connected and moving through the course with ease. The worries slowly fade away, and the child and this horse continue to show off their skills as they go over every jump perfectly.

Kinsley and Ruby prove with every jump and turn that there is nothing to worry about.

Another Youtube user, varrylarry, who has been riding horses since they were 12 years old, slowed down the video and points out just how comfortable Kinsley is with her horse Ruby even at the young age of five, writing:

“Slowing it down at 0:58 and watching closely, both rider and horse look comfortable and safe. Kinsley is in no way “yanking” on the bit. She relies on it for steering simply because her legs are not long enough to put much pressure on Ruby’s sides… Imagine where Kinsley could be in her teen years! Not every kid would willingly trust an animal this powerful which shows her devotion. I always wished I could’ve been learning to ride at that age.”

Kinsley and Ruby continue through the course, and with each varying jump, we get to see different angles of how high they are actually going! Kinsley and Ruby’s form is perfect every time.

Kinsley and Ruby make a turn to allow the crowd to get a closer look at the two of them in all their glory.

Although the crowd is cheering her on, she remains determined and focused on the task at hand. As they gallop past, they make their way to a back-to-back jump, and Kinsley gets into position as Ruby goes to make the final leaps.

Then, it’s time to celebrate the incredible five-year-old and her seven-year-old champion companion.

They continue around the course and then make the final turn for their last jump and stick the landing with ease! The two gallop away with pride as the crowd continues to applaud.

Kinsley and Ruby are an incredible team, and it’s wonderful to watch the pair riding together. It’s clear they both trust each other completely, and because of that, they’re able to make magic.
