What age do you think is best to put a few light rides on a young horse and why?

What age do you think is best to put a few light rides on a young horse and why?
3 is ok I would say like 3 and a half to 4 so they have matured up a bit!
At the age of three and before 4 because they may still be growing but have developed enough that they have strong bones it won't be harmful to their health, and then you can expose them to things while they're young.
I think at 3 or 4. Your horse is young and he is ready to learn and interested in learning.
