    Going to look at her this weekend

    This summer me and a friend are getting a project horse to train. Our parents are all for it so we won't be in the house complaining of boredom all summer.

    Last year we finished out a horse so we thought we'd do it this year, too. We use Clinton anderson. Is two years old to young to start training? I know thay mature at three, and some race horses start at two. Also, if I go and look at a young, untrained horse, what do I look for? I know that normally I would go catch the horse, tack it up, and ride it before I left. So what would I do with an untrained one? Thanks.

    She is a solid black Paint mare, registered.
    2 y/o.
    These were the only pics out there, I know it's hard to critique them. Do you think she'd be good for what I want her for? Thanks.

    2 is too young to start undersaddle. I personally won't buy a non-track trained horse that's started before 3 (the only reason I say non-track-trained is because I love OTTBs... I wish they wouldn't start them so young though.)

    Have you ever started a horse before? It's a lot of work. If you aren't, perhaps looking at something green broke would be best... it's still a challenge!!

    This mare has a very weak end from what I see in the pictures.

    Yeah, last year I finished a greenie. This year though, I have this trainer to help me when I get stuck. She's super-amazing at natural horsemanship. I know it can be frustrating but I know I'll perservere, excpecially with a friend and trainer involved.

    Thanks.

    Maybe if she's almost three. I have three months to get to know her before summer officially starts XD

    Finishing a greenie and starting a horse are completely and totally different experiences. Equally as rewarding, but it's a completely different dynamic.

    I'm curious as to your plan of action for training?

    I'm going to get her on Clinton a. Desensitising, respect junk... ect. Then once she has mastered all that I'll increase groundwork to exersize. Then I'll add a saddle to all that. Then the bridle. Then the rider. There's more in detail, but that's the jist of it

    Many people buy unbroke horses without a plan.

    If you get her, good luck.
