I HIGHLY suggest Clinton Anderson's Foal Starting series.
I started my filly at three months old and it has done wonders for her.
She is now 17 months old and is doing the Advanced Level groundwork.

She is a very respectful, calm, and willing partner.

Whatever method you decide to follow (I much prefer CA's program to PP's), the only thing you really shouldn't do with a young horse is lunge them too much. A couple of minutes each way at a walk or slow trot is fine, but running them in circles for a long time every day can damage their growth plates and joints and predispose them to arthritis.

Pretty much anything else, including ground driving and the like, can be done as soon as the horse is mentally ready.
