So, this thread may already be on here...but I couldn't find it. What is your preference on gender? Mare, gelding or stallion? I have two mares and absolutely LOVE them!! But then again, I lucked out. I can NEVER tell when my girls are in heat, so I don't really deal with the "mareish" behavior. I've ridden some REALLY nice stallions. In fact, I almost prefer them because of their demeanor. But, those are good boys who know their manners....not the crazy studs that give a bad name to the gender. Geldings...um, hmm....I don't have a TON of experience with them, but my mom has a gelding. I find him to be more temperamental then both my mares combined! But, I see him as a pretty good beginners horse. Also, he seems to forget things pretty quick. My girls, teach them something once...and they've got it for life. So I would say for everyday riding, this is my line up.
What about you? What's your favorite gender and why?
