My 9 year old demonstrates pure puppy power. Notice, she is not even peddling...and this is uphill! Stunts like this are NOT to be tried at home without prior training and experience. In addition this team had already run a good distance, before they were hooked up to the less experienced riders. By tiring them out some first, you minimize the threat to the rider's safety and increase the ease of control. It is still very dangerous, and riders (young or old) must be aware at all times, and understand how to control the dog(s) - or bail out!
