My filly, Libby
I actually cinched up Libby's saddle yesterday and ponied her with it on. When we were done with all that, I sat on her bare back, and she didn't protest at all.
I've always thought you could start riding a horse at the age of two, but after googling some information, I'm somewhat doubtful. Read HERE to see what I mean. And HERE. These sites suggest that a horse's bones don't set up until much later than two.
It's a good thing I already have Blue to ride; at my age, I'd hate to have to wait three more years for Libby to be old enough. Who knows what sort of shape I'll be in by then?
