[QUOTE=smrobs;1061213]Hmm, a 3 year old that is being ridden daily by kids....
3YR OLD HORSE
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 don't see the problem with this one, I mean I got my first pony when I was 5 and she was 2 when I got her, and before that I was riding my dads horses and they wasnt to old themselves.

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

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. ;;

Yeah I agree, age is just a number, you can't put a number on the mentality of a horse or a person.

When I can't ride anymore, I shall keep horses as long as I can hobble along with a bucket and wheelbarrow. When I can't hobble, I shall roll my wheelchair out by the fence of the field where my horses graze, and watch them!

I'd be worried that riding horses too young will break them down and be retired by 15...

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Chestnut Stallion

It always makes me laugh when they insist that the only reason they would get rid of said precious horse is because they are moving... But it cancels out the reason if they are willing to trade for a better horse or a 5K horse trailer.

Maybe Stally injured her and she doesn't want him? And doesn't say what age he is either...

It's not really the age, it's the mentality of the horse.

I guess I just have higher expectations for a horse that I was looking to buy. Sure, they may have a super nice temperament, but kids simply don't have the experience or know-how to put what I would consider decent training on a horse. Not only that, but at 3 years old, you can't know that a horse is bombproof/kid safe. You just can't. They are still very young and simply haven't had enough time under saddle to be exposed to everything. You can hope that nothing will happen and sometimes get lucky, but you can't know.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

we have a rescued mare that was ridden to hard at her previous home. so she will never be ridden by adults or big kids. Little kids can by next year. to good home only. She is a sweet mare. trust me my son goes around her and leads her, and he has no horse sense what so ever. that is how good she is. If you want a good mare or brood mare let me know. Give me a call 1-XXX-XXX-XXXX to come out and see her. No people with slaughter on minds PLEASE. Free

^ Found this one on Craigslist.
Uhmmm...how are you going to get this horse ready for little kids with no horse sense if adults who know what they are doing can't ride her?
