As he is two, I wouldn't be riding him much at this point. Do lots of little ground work sessions, working on w/t/c in a nice large arena on the lunge for a max of 15 minutes a day (lunging,) a few days a week (let him have days off) get him used to being tacked up and tied and brushed. You can hand walk him down trails and around the barn too, working on leading. Do some yielding and sending groundwork sessions too.
But frankly that's all I would do with him, and continue with him until he is at least 3 and has stronger joints and more muscle from light-low-stress work.
Then when he's 3 and going on 4, I would begin to ride him with a riding instructor so both of you can get really good at w/t/c and lateral movements, making him a stellar trail horse and maybe even with the possibility of entering a discipline and competing.
But it takes time, no need to rush. Good luck :)
