Right. It's called mentoring. I don't breed horses but I do breed Labs. I had someone show me how to collect my stud dogs and inseminate females. Now it's my turn to show others with stud dogs how to safely collect them and inseminate females.
Had to be the same in horses. Find a good mentor to show you how to stand a stallion and how to judge whether or not your stallion and the mare in question match up well.
