QH are started early showing just exactly why smrobs (and TB breeders) say. Because the futurities start at 2.
Some WP and even HUS futurities are at 2. However mine are started at 2 also and our futurities are not until the end of their 3yo year.
Starting them early makes it easier and better on the horse. They are not pushed as hard or as fast b/c there is more time.
