If that horse even so much as twitched, that mother could pull the baby off of it and move to safety. That isn't as easy when an infant is strapped into a carrier or being held while the mother is ALSO on the back of a horse.

Benefits would be a new experience, new sights, new smells, new sounds, new textures, and more for his little brain to process and think about.
It wouldn't be different from an infant riding in a car, if the infant was sitting in the front seat in it's mother's lap. I am pretty sure that was said earlier. If there was a specific safety device created to keep an infant safe and restrianed on the back of a horse, it would be comparable but there isn't so it's not even an argument.

Your son can't get those benefits by just being near the horses? He has to be on the back of one in order to see the sights, smell the smells, feel the horses hair and experience the beauty of a horse?
