Hi, this is my first proper post on this site...
Next month I'm getting a wild, 6 month old, New forest colt. I was wondering, is it a good idea to start doing join up with him at this age, or wait until he's older. To be honest I want him to get as used to me as possible, as he's not even halter broken.
I know how to break a horse, because I broke my mare (well, she'd been broken but traumatised by a motorcycle then not ridden since, so took the same amount of effort to get her trust and respect before I could even think about backing her)
Also, what is the best age to break him? I know it shouldn't be younger than two, and also, is it neccessary to turn away, if so, what age?
Thanks in advance
