This was my point when I responded to the original post about a 3-yr-old pony,
but I didn't make myself very clear.  It was a Half-Arab pony, so you have
whatever breed of pony that may or may not mature faster, but you still have the
Arab half and I just don't agre with the idea of doing too much riding at that
age.  As I said, I could be wrong, but it seems that as careful as we have to be
with conditioning in general, doing that much that young seems like it's
inviting trouble down the line.Mickie
