Mares or Geldings?
Here one for all of you!
Writtle College in England have been researching something, which gender is better? Are Mares or Geldings better sporthorses?
Most of the horses on the highest level (90%) are geldings, but the scientists think Geldings performance isn't as good as the mares.
Dr Tim Whitaker: "We actually expected that Geldings would be used more as sporthorses than mares, but when we saw the results, there actually was no difference between the genders."
Plenty of people think and say that geldings are better than mares because their character is better and therefor.. easier to train. But the results show that it isn't true. During a competition mares perform even better than geldings!
That's quite something!
