Would you buy your 5 year old kid a 2 year old horse? On a fb group I belong to a lady is looking for a horse for her 5 year old. She was offered a 2 year old that is not like any other 2 year old horse This was what she told the one who was looking "a young horse can be just as good or better than an aged one when it has a great mindset and good trainer"
I say they haven't been exposed to enough or had enough asked of it to know how it is going to react in any given situation. Just my opinion. What's yours?
