We break everything as yearlings, and start light driving. At 2 they start training down and if they are fast and strong enough they start racing. If not, they start racing at 3 or sometimes 4 instead.
I have mixed emotions about racing at 2. But as far as just light work, I see no problem as starting them as yearlings and getting them broke.
Also remember these are full sized horses, not minis. So they are a lot larger as yearlings than the minis are. And especially at 2 and 3 they are a lot larger.
