I own a horse that was ridden too hard too young. Willow has a bowed leg which we were told by our vet and trimmer was mostly likely from someone riding her too hard before her knees closed. She's fine now, but I've been warned that she will probably have arthritis in her knees when she's older.
If you plan on doing any performance or hard riding in the distant future then I would say "pass" on this one.

Getting on your 2yro old and taking a short leisurely walk is completely different. The colt I was refering to I found out was doing walk trot canter at 18 months and working on a headset. You don't get that by hopping on for 10 minutes once a week and taking it easy. The horse will to replace my mare that is already arthritic. I want something that I can ride heavily in the mountains for years and years to come. I've seen plenty of horses available, just going to keep looking.

Seems like a good plan to pass on this particular one, then. Good luck in your horse search!
