I've never broken in one this young either. Get the CA colt starting series. His foal starting has 2 types: one with a foal that has been handled (imprinted), and one with a foal that has never been handled.
ALL colt starting should be from ground zero, even if you have handled him, so you'll teach everything. You must also be very patient and make your sessions regular but brief, 15-20 minutes, NO MORE.
Ryan Gingerich suggests 5-7 repetitions of any exercise, no more bc your horse will tune you out.
It's much different than training an older horse for muscle building or training for endurance or jumping or chasing cattle or prepping for a show.
