Question When should I start my horse??

Ok, I have a 1.7 year old apha filly that I was planning on starting when she's 2...But want to know how old everyone else starts their fillys/colts...she about 13.2-14hh will be about 15.1-2hh when she's done growing. Should I start her at 2 or??? Any advice would be great!(:

I lightly started my quarter horse at 2. That was saddling, lunging, walk trot, etc short lessons and didn't ride him every time. Then left him alone, would take him out on trail rides but only ponied him, hauled him around some. Just let him grow up. He will really start his training this spring when the snow is gone.

I like to start the basics at 2 such as saddling, exposing them to things, lots of walks on trails, some very light backing, sacking out, etc...
Then turn them out for winter and start putting miles on at 3.

I prefer to do the actual riding at 3, but you can do all the prep work up until then.
Sacking out, get them used to being saddled, ground driving, ponying or leading out on trails, etc.
