  1. New to the web site and was hoping for some input. I have a 10 year old and 11 year old mares. I have owned both since birth and got busy building my business so they have been turned out to pasture and left with my other horses. I did ground work on both but never acutally broke either one to ride. How hard, if at all possible would it be to break them now to ride and maybe eventually to run barrels on them. I am worried even if I get them broke will they handle the stresses of hauling and running in strange places or will there always be something that they can't quite get over. I have dealt with and handled horses my entire life but never dealt with a situation quite like this.
  2. When To Start Riding A Young Horse?

    Of everything I've learned and read in over all these years of working with and owning horses, there is a large variance of when it's safe to start riding a young horse (2? 3? 4?) after saddle breaking. Thoughts? Opinions? (I know a horse is generally considered "adult" and grown by 4 yrs)
