oil changing in a ford splash on 1994 Ford Ranger

Hi, i was wondering how often should oil be changed in a 1994 splash, when i haven't yet put 3000 miles on it. I really dont drive it alot and when i do, its just short distances, and what im wondering is, if not changing the oil in about a yr. is hard on the engine?
