what age ???
Hi - Lots of good advice given here, I agree with all. Asking about what age to start riding a
horse, some of it depends on the breed, some mature faster than others. Warmbloods particularly take longer. But, I have bred a couple of times and I didn't start any real work
before 3 years..... not saying that your guy has been ruined by what he did at 2, just not how some of us would start one. When they are 2 I did have them ground trained and also
did some long lining, like lunging but not on a circle, saving those joints. At 3 I started light work, riding lightly but regularly (5 x week). All I wanted was to teach them to go
forward happily and learning the aids, voice transferred to seat. I think your boy is just
getting smarter and trying to do what he would prefer, and so important that you do
get his respect. I would work with a REPUTABLE trainer to help you along over this bump.
