I have a Shire x Percheron and he turns three years old in October. What age do I back him and start riding him?

    He is old enough now.  Many start just a little younger (like 2 1/2 years) but 3 is old enough.  He is somewhat ground trained?  Saddle?  Harness, stall etc?  If not you would definitely start with that first.

I have just acquired my first 16 year old Percheron and will be gettting him on Sat. He's 100% love at first sight!

Hello, I just added a 2 1/2 yr old filly to our family. She is beautiful, noble, gentle and has a great temperament. I just love her!
