    When others come on here and mention riding a two year old there is an uproar. Why is it okay to WTC this two year old, but not others? Is it just because this one might make money in the futurities? But racehorses make money too so I can't think that is the reason

    Thank you ahead of time for answering my questions
    I'm going to venture an answer, I hope you don't mind Tiff.

    Most other horses are NOT going to be futurity horses. A lot of people that post wanting to start a 2 year old just want to get on and ride, and they really have no good reason to start them at 2.
    Tiffany bought Rem specifically as a reining futurity horse. She has hired an extremely popular and experienced trainer in our area to minimize anything going wrong.
    Futurity horses get started at 2. Do I really agree with it? No, but that's how things are right now, and Tiffany truly does care about Rem. This horse is well taken care of, and is in really good hands for training.
    I'm sure there have been others on here with WP or other futurity horses on here that have received the same support.
    Hope that answers your question!

    I would have said the same thing.

    Farmpony also has a horse that was started as a two year old for AQHA shows. She was shown some support but she was also talked down to by alot of people.

    Do I agree with the futurity being for 3yr olds? Nope, but I can't change that on my own!

    I think she is lovely and at the end of my ride my mare likes to drop her head like that as well as a Ahhh moment she knows she did her job well with that long and low cool down

    Thanks, Tiff. That means a lot to me. Yeah, Denny was my big screw up but he taught me so much that I can't be ashamed or mad about how he is now. None of my horses are even close to perfect but I like to claim that they are. LOL. But I do know that the problems they have either came from me or are in their nature and I just never fixed them.

    When are you planning to compete with Rem? Or does it all kinda depend on how her training goes?

    Thanks CR! Love your Avatar BTW!

    Smorbs I will compete with her in 2011, she will be in the 2010 futurities, if her training goes well, but I won't be riding her. My trainer will be showing her next year.

    **** those aussies and being so cute!

    Cute looking horse, she does look short though, how tall is she?

    I also have to agree, a lot of the money is in the futurties and a lot of the more valuable horses, especially studs make their names entirely in futurity classes. Doesn't make it entirely right, but as long as a horse is started out right and not pushed super hard it can be done right and allow the horse to have a long career after its futurity days.
