    Shina, not when done extremely and carefully as I have been doing. If I were hopping up and doing extensive training sessions for 30-45 minutes multiple times a week while trotting and cantering, then probably yes. However our rides consist of 5 minutes, max of once a week, and is kept to a quiet walk. I also was not asking for critiques ;)
    I wasn't critiquing you, I was asking a question.

    The orange was my husbands idea It's trimmed in camo too since he's a hunter :)

    Sorry saying it was a critique >.< I'm just used to people bashing a lot of things I do (and it's normally not with the horse) so I tend to jump to that. I apologize :)

    That's fine. I just clarified my point, LOL. Maybe somebody can come along and answer my question, since I am genuinely clueless when it comes to what ages to start things.

    I don't think saying so is really a critique. Sometimes people suggest things because they aren't sure if the person is totally aware? Some people don't know that it can lead to problems.

    You may not have been asking for critiques , but when you post something it's very common that people are going to ask questions or post their opinion . I am new the horse care and things of that nature , but the only thing I got from the earlier post was concern for a horse and being that most people are horse lovers on here , I would think that woud be understandable! If you don't like what people have to say , don't make a public post where anybody can reply ! Have a great day and happy trails!!

    Shina most people I talkt to don't like starting colts till theyre about 3 or 4....enough time to get some muscle and grow enough. But it depends on the horse...i did the same thing as her with Charlie...he was already so bultky at 2 that I would ride him for about 10 min. Twice a week. Not enough to stress him out or harm him when he's not fully developed.


    Based on Izzies size and muscle/bone mass id say theyre perfectly safe getting on her for a few minutes every now and then.

    You'll get a lot of diverse comments on when is a good time to start a horse. Some say 3, some say 4, some say 2, and heck, some of my TB friends thought I was nuts for not breaking her as a yearling (that I do see as wrong) One of the ladies I've known and respected for a long time confessed she broke her old gelding when he was a yearling. She didn't know any better, was well before the internet, and didn't have any horse knowledge. He never had a lame day in his life, and she lost him to colic. Some horses when broken at 3 can wind up with issues. Starting at 2 is a preference for some people. With my girl she is mentally ready for more work, but physically she is not.

    Thank you :) She is a tank! The main reason for starting her when I did was that she maintains quite a chunk of muscle from where we live (she is pastured in a hilly area) and she was going crazy without some sort of a job. I don't agree with constant lunging, and with the light riding it gives her something different that makes her think.

    ... That half-arab is most certainly not what one would call a "tank." xD

    That's why we started Charlie early too. He was quite a chunk and he was getting realy bored stuck in the field while everybody else was being worked so we started his training at 2.
