Thank you for being responsable and deciding on a gelding. He will suit your needs much better than a stallion or expensive show horse ever will. I agree with all the other posters out there advising against it.
"Happy" is a cutie, and I hope all works out for you. He sounds safe and sane enough for a beginner rider for when you're teaching and, being a gelding, can be safely pastured with your mare.
I do believe she has decided against a stallion and is looking for a gelding or a mare.
I agree with everyone that a stallion probably isnt a good idea...ok, ISNT a good idea but at the end of the day, its her choice. But seeing as she has already said she isnt getting a stallion then maybe we should give her a break and get on with the topic
I think geldings are great! They're calm,athletic(usually),and don't have a huge attitude. Like most mares at the barn I go 2 hav big attitudes are are just..well. Mares! And stallions well yall know how stallions are :roll:
