Ahh.. So rig is just another term for cryptorchid.

I in no certain terms would leave a gelding in with a mare if he was mounting and penetrating her. Not only could it cause her to get an infection that could kill her, you take the risk of the gelding getting kicked and seriously hurt. There are to many risks to make it worth leaving a gelding and mare together that "breed" on a regular basis.

Hi, I kept them together for a bit because they seemed to get on great and actually when they were together they weren't so aprehensive about being separated, often I would find one out in the field and the other stood in the stable, but now I have had to separate them again. As soon as the temperature went up (to above freezing) he wouldn't leave her alone, not mounting her but generally running her around and biting her. she'd had enough and was letting loose at him with both feet. I can't ask about when he was gelded, hes 18 years old, the last person that had him only had him 2 months and nothing they said about him seems to be true, hes certainly not the safe gentleman they said he was - got taken for a ride on that one - the two months should have given it away really shouldn't it!!

My gelding used to do that to my mare but not penetrating. Sometimes geldings who have been gelded recently or who have bred with mares before will do that though I haven't heard about them actually penetrating them . In my case he had been bred before and so being with another mare in season got him excited. He stopped doing it and I'm sure yours will too.

A gelding doesn't have to have been gelded recently or even previously used at stud for penetration to happen.

I know but that is usually why they do it.
