What is expected of a 2 year old (generally speaking)? I do not plan on riding her until she is 3 at the youngest. She has worn a bareback pad and surcingle. She leads well, is great for the farrier, ties, and I have lunged her for VERY short increments just so she can get the idea of moving away from me...just at the walk and trot, but she learned "walk", "trot", and "ho" in any combination in those few minutes. I have taken her over poles on the ground and very small cross rails and verticles. She bathes well, also.
I have not yet attempted to clip her (my fault-I do not own cordless clippers) and we are working on the trailering. Other than that, what should she know? Generally speaking, what is safe for a 2 year old to do? I am very paranoid about over working and causing unneeded strain to her joints, but she is getting bored!
She is an Andalusian/Thoroughbred, if it helps. Thanks~
