    Sorry old mate I don't understand why you would as a breeder not want to have a bit of a brag about strawberry. She is a lovely horse who has been really easy to start why not brag about it.

    The horse is under2 years old and still looks like the baby that she is, a big baby BUT still a baby.
    I don't see anything to brag about

    Weird my read/stalk/research of that thread says she is 2.5? Not slander? How is that slander...I think Deb was and has done a good job...you guys are the only ones pointing out 2ish year old horses should not be started :confused:

    I only put up one link and it was to a YouTube clip and it had nothing to do with standies :confused: I do recommend the YouTube clip as it is rather fascinating, even if it has not much to do with this discussion!:eek:

    Mate I don't have to be a horse breaker or breeder or trainer in order to think that a 2 year old or under horse is too young for riding.
    I am not any of the above, people riding their horse at a young age is an economic thing for the most part. Break at 2, full riding at 3.
    Back in the dark ages it was break at 3 and full work starting a 4.
