Waiting to back a horse?
I recently bought a two year old who will turn three in January. Because I just bought him and the previous owners didn't do any work with him (other than haltering, leading) I am thinking about starting with the basics (continue with leading and ground manners, and lunging) and waiting until almost his 4th year to start him under saddle. He came to me very underweight and not very well cared for. I am thinking he could benefit from 10-12 months of training to become stronger and really be ready. I'm wondering what the drawback to this would/could be. Thanks.
