    Yeah I thought his name was cute. Even if he is 2 and not three he is definitely big enough to start riding training.

    Not on everyone's opinion.

    First of all good luck with your boy, he looks handsome, and that color really pops on him, I'm sure you are going to have great fun.

    Back to the age thing, remember we aren't just talking about physical maturity when we are talking about riding, but also about mental ability, and to me that is a big reason for taking it slow and steady with babies, it is to easy to mess with their minds and end up with issues if they are to mentally stressed, rather than stretched early on.

    Once again, handsome boy, have fun

    Thanks! Don't worry I've been training young horses for years. It's probably going to be a month or two before I really try to get on him. He already has some pretty solid ground work as far as lunging and driving goes before I even bought him. I tested out what he learned so far yesterday. He did better than I thought he would. But there is still work to be done. He needs more desensitizing and trust building and more ground foundation skills. If I hoped on him right now I would find myself hurt laying in the dirt. Trust me I'm the biggest fan of not getting in a hurry when it comes to horse training. People that hurry often find themselves hurt or with a horse they can't control.
