BR, that would be funny, considering he is actually 2 weeks younger than she is (she's just a yearling too so plenty of time to get him broke before she's old enough to ride by herself).

MM, yep. I have worked with him since the day he was born on something that I knew I would need more than anything, getting him to drop his head when I ask. I can saddle a big old tall thing with some effort but if they won't drop their head, I cannot bridle them without a ladder (it sucks being short). It is nice to know that all I have to do is push lightly on his poll, tug on his forelock or mane and he'll drop his head nearly to the ground and accept both the halter and bit/bridle.

Warmbloods can hit over 18hh, do we do the same with them? And they probably have a MUCH more powerful buck!
You don't know how many ads I would see for horses under 2 years old, that the sellers would put "hasn't been ridden yet!" in the ad...the students I worked with last year, were constantly asking if the horses were old enough to ride, and several of them would say "well we break 'em in at a year!" in response to me telling them they wouldn't be ready til they were over 2 yrs. Old. And the more 'shocking' part is that they don't own big horses...these are scrawny mustang type horses! Poor things!
