I have a two year old Saddlebred filly.
I havent hah her very long, but she is extremely smart and willing. She has come a very long way. She loads, clips, ties, bathes, saddles, bridles, etc. I have been ground driving her every day or so..
I have already sat on her back and did very little walking with a halter and lead, just bareback.
I am getting impatient on actually starting her in riding..I am worried about her legs and back. She is at least 16hh, still has the narrow build like a younger saddlebred. I want to start her saddleseat..light riding for now, of course. I would just like to get other peoples oppinion on weather I should wait another year or if I could start her lightly, THANKS!
