Starting a horse under saddle at ~2 1/2 years old is still rushing it but it's done quite often with a stock type horse (Quarter Horse, Paint, Appy, etc). Personally I would not get on her back until she turned 3 - period. If she were an Arab, I would actually wait until she turned 4 or 5.
What you can do by the end of the summer is have her driving in long lines or possibly even a bike. It all depends on her development.
