Gelding or a Mare?
My dad is letting me a horse, but he really wants me to get a mare. My dad already has a gelding and he is pretty sweet, but my dad wants me to get a mare because in his opinion, they're gentler. I have no problem with getting a mare, but all the websites I checked there are hardly any mares for sale that aren't broodmares. Even though they have trained mares for sale, they aren't in my price range. I haven't really trained horses, but I have ridden 'non broken' horses. There are a lot more trained geldings for sale and at a good price. I myself for some reason like male animals better, like dogs cats and such. I would love a mare though. I just would like your opinion on geldings and mares and their 'gentle meter'. Also, is it hard to train horses that are somewhat calm horses?
