    Well, it truly depends on how the horse is built and what discipline his future will lead on to.

    After ground work and driving, usually they start around 2yrs. That is how most saddlebreds start under saddle. I'd have a profession saddlebred trainer help you so your horse can start the right way in a healthy position!

    In the 1950 s at a midwestern saddlehhorse training barn,I watched the trainers there start young horses at 18 months old.In single harness,and gradually to pull a light 2 wheel breaking cart. Saddle work did not start till 2 years old.
