    Has anyone began breaking their 2011s? I've been on mine for 3 or 4 short rides in the last year

    Mine is still the size of a dog, so unfortunately I haven't. *sigh

    Someday she'll be a real horse.

    Funny you should ask that, I just got in from working (groundwork)Queenie. Been kinda following Clinton Anderson way of breaking her in. So far so good. I haven't ridden her yet though.

    What type is your horse? Lazy or Reactive? I'd say lazy for mine... So far.

    Edit; I'm kinda in the same boat as Shoebox, She's supposed to mature to 15.hh and she's probably at 14.

    My 2011 is a LATE 2011 so I haven't even saddled her yet. I'm about to start mouthing her though after I get her 2 year old floating done if she doesn't have a new home by then, and I might do some ground driving/saddling this year with her. No riding as a 2 year old though. I don't hate the idea of riding 2 year olds, I think its a 'horse by horse' thing and Kenzie just isn't ready yet. Plus she's baaaarely 14hh when stretching...lol. She doesn't look as noodly as she did 3 or 4 months ago and I'm starting to see a real horse in there somewhere!

    I have started mine,Just walk/jog...she was kinda lazy My trainer/coach came today & we had a lesson.Learned some exercises/maneuvers to do with her & to help her kick it up a notch, We had our first canter....short but sweet I just wanted her carrying a rider doing the basics before snow flys {which forecast is tonight}. Don't know how many more rides I'll get in on her & she'll rest for few months. Come spring she will go into full time training with my trainer.Have started most of my horses so figured if I could get the basics started & have backed her then she doesn't have to go through all that stuff with her. Can't wait till spring!!

    I don't think I would call Roman either. He's not lazy undersaddle he just doesnt realize that when I ask him to go I want him to keep going XD

    ^^ I wonder sometimes that even she doesn't know her personality yet. I still am not convinced she's "born" to run as she was advertized. :)

    Any others having problems with 2 yr olds not liking their mouth handled? Queenie's kinda funny about that and will move her lips around if you put a hand on her lips, to the point of flipping her upper lip clear out... Haha maybe she'll be a trick horse huh?

    I havent EmilyJoy. I've got Roman a few times as a weanling trying to nibble so he knows better than to put his lips on me unless I give him permission. How long have you had her? Maybe she's just trying to figure you out?

    This is my 2011 filly, I got her as a yearling... so unfortunatly no baby pics, and she is grade purebred QH. I have saddled and bridled her, but have not got on yet. She is smaller and finer build... so I am waiting for her to mature more!

    As a long yearling:

    Earlier This year as a 2 year old:

    A few more of her:

    Not mine anymore as Prince left for pastures new at the beginning of spring, was very hard letting him go but he has a lovely new home where he is much loved and very well looked after. So here are some pictures of him as a foal, yearling and a two year old in his new home.
