Love the posts that you guys have been giving. I have a 3 yr. old and I want to wait until he is older and more mature. I am working him on the ground but with my extra wieght I want to get both of use in shape before I get on his back. I would love to do endurance trail rides with him so I feel the extra time that I give him to mature will help him in the long run

Just to let you guys know that I do not have plans on ridding my sweet Sassy. She has been ridden by my trainer and I might send her to a saddlebred barn to get he show carrer started next show season. I do alot of ground work and ground driving. I might even get a cart to hook her up to. We could even show her in fine harness while I loose more wight. So far in 2mo I have lost just over 20lbs. I hope by the time I am at the weight she can handle she will be redy to ride I am in no rush to do anything.

Right now, everything you're doing sounds perfect. Don't rush into riding her yourself, and just let her take it slowly. If anything, invent toys and games for her to learn with in the meantime.
