    Is there another pen away from the mare? The reason I say this is that a pregnant mare in with a stallion is dangerous. She could possibly turn on him if he tries to mount her and that is incredibly dangerous. The other thing is the foal, do you have a seperate space for the mare to foal? Stallions aren't always kind to foals, even some geldings.
    Don't feed him immediately before riding him, that can make him colic. If you do feed before, wait a few hours before riding. Him being an outside horse shouldn't make a difference, my horse is an outdoor horse and she is fine. I don't doubt you not selling this horse, besides, not many people want a 25 year old stallion. Especially since he is not safe to ride. I'm very sorry if you've been offended, but the way you've described the situation makes it sound like you have a problem beyond your capabilities at the moment. If he doesn't get any better by following the advice given here, then it would be safest for you to stop riding him and maybe get another horse that is safe for you to ride..

    Sorry, I realize you won't like this, but the situation is beyond your capabilities. I also realize that you want to ride a horse badly and this is your only choice, but believe me - you are not ready for the issues that you might run into with this horse. And he doesn't care that he's 25 or that he has lived with you for such a long time - given the opportunity, he will dominate you. And it will hurt.

    And you should separate the horses. He can really hurt the mare and the foal.

    I know you are in a tough situation that is beyond ideal and you are doing the best you can with what you have to work with. The problem is there is not much anyone can help you with in a situation as problematic as the one you are in. And it's obvious that it is not your horse or your farm, so you don't have a say in just about anything, so there is not much help someone can give you. You have a stallion, no trainer, in with a mare, and free access to food. That poor horse has so many distractions it's a wonder you can ride him at all. I don;t doubt that one day things will go wrong and I am scared for you really.

    I agree with everyone that having him in a pen with a mare (who is pregnant to boot) is a terrible idea. But it's obvious that at 15 you are not the one able to do anything about it. Good luck.

    No he was trained and he still is being a stud dose t make a diffrents he will not mount even if the mare is in heat and you are on his back she is dominate he knows his place. Today I figured the problem is when I feed her but not him he wants grain and trying to make him slimmer cause he's sorta fat. He did better but doing one of the stupidest things at he moment one rein the squeeze behind his shoulders when he gets faster than I want. I understand you all are giving me advice I will go against what you say for no reason but what you must know is that Even though I haven't been in any fancy stupid expensive training/riding center I do know how to ride we jump bareback we ride bareback and I won't back down. Using the crop docent hurt I didn't use it today. But. This is what I do I do not abide to the things people say I really don't care upon my life at the moment so I do this. PLEASE DO NOT RESPOND TO THIS FOR I WILL NOT READ IT ANYMORE.

    Well, I am going to respond and you can choose not to read and that is just fine. You came to a forum to ask for help. No one judged you because you didn't have "fancy lessons" and I feel sad if that is how you took it. But if you feel as if you know what is best and you "do what you do" then why even ask anyone? When I post and ask for advice, it's because I am open and seeking out other people's opinion because I am acknowledging that I need help and don;t know all the answers and that what I do know is not working. Doesn't mean I take every advice given, but to get mad and take offense because I didn't get advice I wanted makes no sense.

    Again, it's ok if you choose not to read anymore responses. I am responding anyway because maybe someone else might really want some help with this issue and will appreciate various viewpoints. I can;t tel you how much I have learned reading old threads here. :)

    Well, I hope you don't get seriously injured I don't care that you don't have crazy expensive lessons. I certainly didn't. Don't bother asking for help unless you're prepared for the answers.

    I edited my post because the TS clearly doesn't want advice.
