Depends on the horse. My first horse was a yearling, incredibly sweet. Very laid back, puppy dog personality, never got a burr up his butt. He was a great first horse and I'd never re-do that.
We had a 2 year old paint we got, gelded the week before he came to us, and he was an absolutely phenomenal horse. Anyone could ride, perfect in all ways on the ground and under saddle. From the very beginning.
It all depends on the horse. Your experience. And the mentors/trainers you have. I'd never say don't do it, because there are always exceptions.
