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.
