Okay, story behind this question:
Me & my Daddiey went down the road to a guy that owns horses, 7 or 8. I needed to ask him about his farrier, Khanner needs his feet done badly. So we got to talking & he said how his wife has MS so she can't really ride/ take care of all of her horses. So he is giving them away, he showed me his two yr old purebred Sorrel Arab mare, Pepper.
She is one of the best looking horses ever, no joke. I don't say things like that lightly. We live three or four houses down so his wife can come & see her.
She is two, what age should I start riding her, for Khanner I have been riding him & he is four.
I read that if you put a light saddle or saddle pad on a two year olds back to get them used to it & to clamber on at 3 for 3-4 mins at a time. Then at 4 you can start training.
What do you all think?
I have trained before but I always had older horses that needed to be worked for like 6 or 7.
Please get to me when you can!
