Wyo – I agree with you (naturally). 5 is also fairly young for jumping, as horses mature slowly (the larger the breed, the longer it takes also). I tend to agree with the Spanish Riding School on training. If memory serves, they don’t start training until they are about 6, and are able to perform through their 20’s. I’ve seen a lot of physical issues that could have been prevented, had the horses been allowed to mature for a longer period of time.

It is never the horse's fault
