Normally, yes. However, if you have a stallion who's bound and determined to get away from you, all that finesse and knowledge won't do you any good.

I'll take finesse and knowledge anytime over strength. ALL horses are stronger then pretty much ALL people.

I have seen strong men loose a stallion that a small person could handle, it is all in the handling and forward thinking of the individual on the end of that lead. Although I think some kids may posses this ability to be aware, think ahead, and deal with any of the million decisions one may have to make dealing with a stallion, I believe MOST kids don't. In fact, let's face it, most grown people don't.

There is a girl at the local gaming show I ride at who shows in the Junior divison and has an awesome Arab Stallion. She handles him very well and he is a nice horse you would never think he was a stallion.

We work with stallions in class here at school and no one has problems. I think its alot about the attitude if you go in confident you will be alright. Granted the stallions we have are all very nice but they an get a little excited during a collection but no on has had any major problems with them. I had not dealt with Stallions until I started going to college here but I don't mind it a bit
