Sorry, it is a sensitive subject to me. My 17yo gelding has all kinds of issues that the vet (and everyone else) surmise are as extensive as they are because of him being campaigned seriously as a 2 and 3yo under saddle. Too much work for his young legs.

Can I ask why you bailed?
You can still stop a horse with no stirrup and only 1 rein.

I'm sorry your gelding is having problems. I appreciate that you are taking the time to share your experience with horses that have been started early. I promise you though, she is not being pushed. I showed her in longe line all throughout her yearling year and her jog on the line is the same as her jog under saddle. I lope her probably every three days or so, just one time around the arena each way. I only show her in 2 year old walk trot classes, except for state fair that is next week.

Yes, I'm well aware that you can stop a horse with no stirrups and one rein. I recognize that I should have done a one rein stop, but I didn't have a helmet on and I have extensive damage in my left knee that has required three surgeries. I couldn't risk hurting myself.
Just curious, what's with all the bashing?

Thejessiefox- you are going to get other people opinions when you post on a forum- it comes with the territory. No one is "bashing" you in any way. I think that everyone has respectfully expressed their concerns and that is ok. If you don't agree with what other have said that is ok too- but try to be open minded to the fact that others don't agree with the way that you are doing things.

Thanks!

Its fine to voice your own opinions but its unfair of you to tell her what to do with her own horse when you do not know her or have seen pictures of the horse.

Thanks. That's exactly how I feel, but I do know that some people feel strongly about saddle breaking horses when they are older. Her knees are fused. I'd never do anything to her or push her if it would hurt her.
A little update- we got home from state fair last night. Won grand champ in halter AND western pleasure. :)

NO MATTER what age your horse is this is too long to be on a horse PERIOD and to compound the stress with a horse of this age is totally irresponsible.

I don't get it. 30-45 minutes is too long to be on ANY horse? That is what you wrote : NO MATTER what age your horse is this is too long to be on a horse PERIOD.
