This is my plan:
-Let him grow until late june - july.
-in june or july, Just get on him for a few minutes a few times a week, until late august or early september.
-Start teaching him leg cues and trotting for a few minutes in september to october.
-Let him rest and finish growing during the winter-just sitting on his back sometimes so he dosnt forget
-in spring, when he's three, do lots of trotting and canters. Go trail riding and that sort of stuff.
How does that sound? Is that easy enough?
PS it satisfies me very much to just SIT on my very own horse!
My trainer also starts riding horses when they are around 2 - 2 1/2. ALL of those horses are sound.
