    Yearling
    She's a very pretty color/pattern. I like grey paints.

    On the topic of when to break a horse, I don't like to start them until they are at least 3. Even when a 2 year old is large, it doesn't mean their bones have finished growing or are strong enough to start carrying a rider without issues down the road. I never understood why TB trainers start so young. I would guess that has a lot to do with why those TB's started at a young age have a lot of leg and foot problems?

    I also associate "tank" with a really bulky horse. I'm not used to the more "streamlined" breeds.

    Not normally, but the only Arab I see in her is in her head and in the way she holds her tail when she's feisty. Her sire (the Arab) wasn't even fine boned like normal Arabs lol

    They break early because they race early....really makes me mad. But I agree. I start the horses I trained (pre army) at three or 4. No younger...but with charlie I would get on bareback for about 10 minutes like once a week and would lunge him twice a week.

    But yeah she is a big girl for her age haha.

    Looks like she has more paint than arab in her ;D

    Regardless, a Polish-type Arabian is still and Arabian, and she, particularly, is a finer-boned girl. Her youth shows, along with her "delicate" features. ;)

    I would be concerned about riding this particular horse at this age, simply because of her current development. On any horse, the growth plates don't start to close until the horse is about four. That's when it becomes safer to start and ride the horse. Riding even bulkier horses at this age can cause problems in the future.

    She is a lovely girl though, and looks very sweet. (: Pretty coloring, and a nice refined head!

    You have so many things in common with me and Rodeo!!! Both a half Paint, Rodeo is half TB, he is 2, I have had him for a little over a year now, and he has been lightly started under saddle! And I even got him a jolly ball for his bday!!! HahaHow neat!!

    First off, I LOVE how you match her polos to her saddle pads!! As you can see by my thread, we are not any where near that creative! Hehe But she is adorable!

    Thanks csim! That is funny! And I love the saddle pads/polos. They were custom made for her :) It's where I get all of her stuff now since I can get custom stuff for around the same price as store bought, and it's great quality :)
