Usually I just deal with them, give correction when needed and if Im also in a bad mood I don't deal with it. Oddly and this is a bit of a TMI, my mare goes into season monthly, vet said its normal so I believe her, but my mare and I fall into our "cycles" at the same time, I start my human cycle and she starts her mare cycle a day later.
Little odd but then we both don't feel like dealing with the others crap and after that time we get along like peas in a pod.
Depo is a decent shot, and if your a woman its much better than regumate as you have to be careful with it as it can mess you up female wise and hormonally. Depo is also alot cheaper only every three months unless you plan to breed ^^
If I was the only one that rode her I wouldn't bother with the supplements, I'd just push her through it, but she works as a lesson horse. I have other horses I can use while she's in heat, but she kind of needs to earn her keep, ya know what I mean? I have been SO sick so I actually had to cancel lessons today, we'll see how she does tomorrow.
