Will he be sound all his life if I break him this early?

QUESTION: 

I have a POA that was born February of 2003. I’m wondering if I can start breaking him now. Will he be sound all his life if I break him this early? I’ve ridden him and he’s done excellent but I’m afraid I will wreck him if I ride him too early. I weigh 105lbs so I’m thinking I could maybe get by with it. Could I?

ANSWER: 

Hi Christina,

I am not a vet, and I am not there to give you the correct answer without seeing your horse first hand. I am quite confident that your vet will give you the answer you are seeking. Talk with your vet regarding your concerns.

Thanks for the question….. Mark
