Article gives us all an insight on the repercussions of starting age, training methods, pain meds and keeping horses stalled up ...
IMO ..... this applies to all horse OWNERS ..

Yup, we have a 2yo in the pasture right now, and people keep asking when I am going to start him.... Not before next year, and maybe even later than that depending on how he matures!! I do mess with him, and do some ground work, but more in a playful way. Nothing mayor.
I have an English background and we never even thought about starting putting weight on them before the third year.... Not saying they will all turn out great because things happen, but I do remember we had lesson horses and ponies that where sound till well into their late 20's and some even in their 30's without any meds.

Thanks for posting.  Isn't just limited to track horses, huh.

I bought a 3 1/2 year old, unbroke - I was told he was in training, but when we went to look at him, he was actually still on the "waiting list" for the trainer.  Bought him anyway, believing we were "behind" for futurities, but today he's running great at 21.  I started him on poles late, but he's close to breaking 19 seconds for a girl in youth rodeo that I let ride him. Not on any supplements and no injections.

I've got 2 young ones that I'm not regretting starting late, either.

 Good article.  I have never been a fan of futurties in any discipline because of the age they start them.

I know some reiners that start them at 18 months.  I used to think it would be cool to get a reiner after they competed in their futurity or derby years, but I wouldn't touch them with a ten foot pole for the same reasons stated in the article.  They ride them too hard and drill them too much too young.

 Good article.  I have never been a fan of futurties in any discipline because of the age they start them.  

I read an article several months ago that some reiners were trying to get the industry to move the futurity age to a year older. This group even started their own show and were waiting another year to start the horses in the show pen.

Not a Good article, this is a GREAT article - you are correct, EVERY horse owner should read this.   They don't have a voice - we should all have the integrity to put their mental and physical welfare first, before our "pleasure" of the ride or the win.
