Coming Home From 30 Days

Hello all! My new boy Walker is coming home from his first 30 days in a few weeks. No general event training just being "broke in" he is a fresh two year old, going to be three in April. He is being trained by the Amish they do a wonderful job starting horses in the area and Albert loves his work. They are very soft-handed for most of the Amish and he loves to build relationships with them. Now, my question is for a young horse coming home from being started what steps do YOU usually take. Meaning after they come home how soon do you ride? Do you let them settle then groundwork?

Just wanting everyone's opinions and it will be my first young one in about five years! I couldn't be more excited.

I figured when he comes home I'd let him settle for a while, then do some ground work to really see where he's at, then climb up in the saddle. I don't want to rush, but don't want to let him "sit" either. I'd like to know some big excercises to work on. I'd like to start getting him soft and supple, reinforcing moving off of pressure and basic leg cues, neck reining, side-passing and so on. Those are "basic" to me. Any suggestions or what you all do would be great!

Why not go to the trainer's and ride under his supervision before bringing the horse home. This can make a big difference in what you can expect once the horse is home. Go several times if you can.
