...what can I do with her this summer? I plan to use her for driving and riding (just pleasure/trails) and was going to start her this year in harness, but is two too young? We were told she's a haflinger/standardbred cross, but several people from the forum have told me her mother is not haflinger, but most likely a Belgian cross therefore her training should be postponed until much later.
I have worked with her since birth and I know she will be easy to train when the time comes. I've put a light english saddle on her already (just once for about 10 minutes) and I'm itching to sit on her just once..., but I don't want to rush. I admit I am anxious, but definitely will do what's in her best interest.
Anyway, I was out doing some groundwork with her today and got to thinking...I'd appreciate your thoughts.
