I agree with everyone on this.
Starting horses, in my opinion, is something not to be rushed. I am not very experienced with it, I am going to be getting my 2year old (before I even think of sitting on him), examined by my vet first just to be on the safe side.
I know that may seem a little extreme, but I've heard some horror stories about horses being started to early and basically having a work overload breakdown. If that makes sense? LOL
And of course as everyone else already stated, it pretty much depends on the horse itself, and breed etc.
He knows when you're happy.
He knows when you're confident.
And he always knows when you have carrots.
