I don't see what the problem is with having a horse without breaking it in! :S
Yes other people may have had older mares broken in, but that's not why I had her and this is not what I asked . Way to make a newbie in need of help feel welcome guys. Lol

The people on this forum are very vigorous in our desire to keep horses safe. We tend to get a bit strong when new folks come on and state things that very obviously may cause a horse to be destroyed if not taken into consideration.
You started out saying you don't want to ride her, but then say you want to breed her. Neither of those things are good in the long run.
As for the "10 years old but I don't want to break her" thing, if something should ever happen to you, your horse will have a better chance of finding a new home if she is rideable. There is no way you can say for certain that the next 15 to 20 years or more, that you will absolutely own her. That is all that was being said. Besides, it's not a sin to ride a horse, most of them enjoy going out riding with their humans. She is ONLY 10, why on earth would you want to NOT let her enjoy your company in all ways possible??
As for the breeding part. First, she has a weak hind end. That is the reason you are posting here. If you have been working with her, but haven't seen any improvement, more than likely it is a structural weakness. Structural weaknesses should NOT be bred, no matter how good the bloodlines. Then, she is 10 years old and has never done anything to prove she is worthy of being bred, and there are millions of unwanted horses already going to the killers. Please do not breed this horse.
I'm sorry you are hearing things you don't want to hear, but this forum is all about the horses. We will do our best to change your mind to benefit your horse. It's just what horse people do!
