[QUOTE=loosie;1877129]Please be aware of, and give careful consideration of the damages that are done when riding babies who aren't physically mature enough. I would be doing all sorts of stuff on the ground with them, but I wouldn't be in any hurry to do much at all on their backs for a couple more years yet. If you're not aware of stages of development, google Dr Deb Bennett for one good source of info.[/QUOTE
A close friend of mine that I ride with is a equine vet. She watches over our horses very closely giving us advice on our traing program based on individule horses need. You are exactly right and every horse is different.
Thanks for the info. I should have mention that. I wouldn't want others to think that you should push your horse to early.
