We are considering quite seriously getting a QH mare. I have ridden mostly geldings. My husband has had both. He never had any problems with any of his mares.
The man at the stable where we are going to board, told us to really think about a mare. They still cycle, and can get "mareish". Whereas, geldings are pretty neutral.
So now, I am thinking....gee what if he is right. We will, of course, go over this with the current owner. She is very docile from what we can see. On a scale of 1-10 (10 being "hot") she is probably a 2.
So, I would just like some feedback on your experiences with mares. Our girl is 8 years old and you can see her in my other thread under "Equipment".
Thanks for looking!
