Well I don't ride them after just 2 weeks-but they may be able to at that time.
I always start off in the arena first to see how things will go.
I work on leading daily as I walk my horses to the turnout so I have taken well broke mares out after the foal is a couple mos old with the baby on a lead. AFTER many MANY session in the arena. I had ponied many a horse and feel comfortable in my abilities to maintain control of Mom and baby.
I do not now or ever in the past-lived in a wide open enough area where I would feel comfy with a foal running loose...hence the lead.
