Even if she wasn't started under saddle as a yearling to get her that broke that fast, what quality of training do you suppose she can boast?
I also don't see the issue in this one..Toby was broke about a month after he turned two for light riding, and by three he was competing and giving lessons to 5 year olds. He's now just turned four, made it to regionals last year, giving lessons to an 11 year old, a younger one around 7, and I believe a 5 year old. He goes on trails, teaches them how to do everything basic as well as game events, is extremely forgiving, etc. He can boast quite a bit of his training in his year and a half. I even learned games on him after only doing occasional trail rides.
It's not really the age, it's the mentality of the horse.
I shall be back to link one ad that I saw, I just can't link on my touch pod. ;; Posted via Mobile Device
