Speaking only from horses that I've owned... On the ground, when riding off alone, when around large new groups, with children, when chillin' I want to be on my geldings. When I want to conquer the world I grab a mare!
I have found in my own personal horses IN GENERAL that geldings have a I don't care where we are, what we're doing as long as food is involved in the end.
My mares have all been terrors in the pasture, mad at the world, bossy "she's MINE" around other horses, and two have left me high and dry on the trail to get back to the herd when I let my guard slip for a second. But two in particular would climb the steepest mountains, like GOATS!, jump off cliffs into water, go further, harder, faster, smarter, better in endurance, and had a endless amount of power if asked... Kinda like us ladies... ;)
But really, it's just up to the individual horse.
