    Talking Beginer Breeders

    Ok so our neibors have a horse they lease out as a barrel horse/cow horse/poll horse. The neibors want to breed the horse. They asked me to post something on HF here for advice (I told them about this horse gorum and they were oohing and ahhhing over it) So they are beginners to the breeding bussiness and they want to know when the best time to breed is and they want to know if they can still use her as a barrel horse while she is pregnant and how long the horse can be ridden while pregnant. Any advice or directions will be helphul and I can put together a book/packet for them

    I would strongly advise telling them to contact an ACTUAL breeder. A breeding business does not come with a manual. You can't learn how to do it properly from online - period. Nobody can cover all the bases, they need to discuss practices with a local breeder so they have someone on hand to go to if something goes wrong.

    I agree, I am a beginner to breeding, but my instructor has bred and trained horses for years, She's my open book. Lol

    I second MM, also tell them to contact a good reproductive vet for more information.

    Ok I will tell them and I'm sure they have or will get a pro breeder. They just want to k now if the horse can still be ridden in her events while pregnant. And the best month to breed the horse.

    Early spring and yes. But I would definitely consult a vet, a breeder, or at least an experienced person and do a lot of research on the costs and dangers associated with breeding.
