    Yearling
    I consider light riding a 150# rider, 30 min rides, 3-4 times a week. That's my opinion on light riding. Others may have different opinions. Also TB race horses are often started before they are 2 and many people start horses at 2. So what you knew is not uncommon just inaccurate (Don't feel bad, a lot of people are under the 2 years assumption). A lot of old school horse trainers still use the 2 years mark. Over the years though they have discovered that 3-4 is the ideal age to start them both physically and mentally. Around here they get 30-60 days starting at 2, turned out to be a horse and mature for the winter and brought back in their 3rd year to finish. A lot of people on here can tell you more. I'm not a trainer I just hang out with a lot of trainers and try to learn as much as I can. Some horses continue to grow til 6yrs. It also depends a lot on the individual horse too.
