It really doesn't matter what age you get, so long as the horse's personality type and training fits your personalized needs & abilities. My horse is 24 years old and by FAR the hottest horse in my barn... On the other hand, I started riding my friend's horse when he was barely 5, and he was the quietest little western/english pleasure horse in the world. It just depends on the horse. There are some very lovely horses who are extremely young and green, but soooo much more lazy/forgiving/courageous than horses twice their age.
