Thanks for your opinion. I know it's not good to ride a two year old a lot, which is why I'm not riding him a lot. I ride him maybe once a month (if that) and am doing it just to make sure he knows his basic walk/trot/stop/backup (I'll add canter too, but I haven't taught him that, it was an accident that we cantered).
My farrier keeps telling me how I should have my boy doing hard stops from a canter and spinning... and everyone out here is pressuring me to work with more things with Dakota, but I'm going his speed. He's getting winter off until about March (the month he was born), so his work will begin again when he's three years old.
I broke my boy at 2 1/2 and it took all of 10 minutes. I had done a lot of things with him but at very short periods of time and over the previous 2 years. I rode him for 10 minutes once a month and upped it to 10 minutes twice a month a few months after the initial breaking.
Breaking and working with a horse requires common sense and if that is applied you should not run into trouble.
BTW...my boy is over 16 years old and the soundest horse you will ever find.
