I personally, am not that big of a mare fan - but when I look for a horse, the gender is the last on my list.
I look for Price First. If the horse is out of my price range, I wont even look. So that comes first. Then I look at Trianing, experience, abillity. Does this horse do what I am wanting to do. How well does this horse do what I want to do, and how long has this horse done what I want to do. All major factors.
Then, when I go out to look at the horse, Conformation is 2nd. Health, alertness, perkyness, how the horse associates with me. Compatabillity. Temperment.
Remember, when you buy a horse - you are buying a companion and partner. So make sure the horse is compatable and has the abillity to do the sport you want to do. You have to coincide.
