With three young children, Zach and Tori Roloff have their hands full on TLC's Little People, Big World. But recently, the reality stars took time to help their son, Jackson, face one of his biggest fears.

TLC shared an exclusive clip with Parade from the April 9 episode of LPBW, and in it, the 6-year-old rode a horse for the first time.

"There was no, like, buildup. It was just kind of, like, 'Oh, he's on a horse,'" Tori said of Jackson getting situated on the saddle and then taking off. "He didn't have any opportunity to think about it."

Because Jackson, like his father, was born with achondroplasia dwarfism, adjustments were made for him to enjoy his first horseback riding experience.

"There are some things, being a little person, things have to be adapted. Riding a horse is one of them," Zach explained. "You usually have to get shorter stirrups to put your feet. And Jackson being as young as he is as well, just being a child, they have to make adjustments for that."

"I was a little nervous, I'm not gonna lie," Tori said in the exclusive clip. "It's one thing for me to bail off a horse. It's a whole other thing for a 6-year-old to do it."

She added: "It was cool to see him doing something that he was so adamant that he wouldn't do. But then, not just doing it to appease me but actually enjoying it."

In addition to their 6-year-old son, Zach and Tori share a daughter, Lilah, 4, and another son, Josiah, almost 2.
