    I'm one to at least try to face my fears when it comes to horses (not so much when it comes to heights and claustrophobia though!). I think that taking lessons on the stallions would be a great way to do that. Like Sophie said...you'll have a trainer there. You said you're intimidated by them because of your lack of exposure to them...this is a great chance to get the exposure to get over that in a safe environment. :)

    It will be good experience for you! Besides, stallions are a lot more predictable than mares any day!

    I completely agree with VelvetsAB! My daughter has shown leadline on a stallion and rides him around the arena, even when there are mares in there with him. He knows when it's time to work and is very mindful of that fact. He's also my all-time favorite trail riding partner and he's a 12yo PB Arab. We've gone on trails with other mares, too, and he's calmer than the 23yo NSH gelding who goes with us.

    Correct me if I am wrong, Arabs are the only breedshow allowing minors to exhibit stallions?

    Thanks for the thoughts, all! Seems like everyone pretty much considers it no big deal.
    I have two more weeks with my current instructor, and then I'll at least check this place out, see what her teaching methods are like.
    Appreciate the thoughts.

    Hey I broke in a wild stallion this year, & I mean straight from runing on the ranges wild, he's a total darling www.wildhorseproject.blogspot.com he will probably one day be used for lesson also. You just teach stallion the rules and then they are generally quieter than any mare or geldings.

    If they are used in lesson I would say go for it no one will be using crazy studs for public lesson, I bet these stallions will be just as good as any mare or gelding, totally agree with everyone elses comments on the subject

    Stallions definitely intimidate a lot of people there are some very bad stereo types out there for them

    I don't know if they're the only breed that allow it in shows. I know not many breeds outside of Arabs do, though.

    When I showed Morgan's we had a senior stallion who was the go to for anyone with confidence issues. He packed kids, beginners, and scared to death people. With alot of style. Susan

    In barn I used to go sometime when I was a kid most horses were stallions. It's not about the gender or whether its cut/not cut. It's about training. :)
