    I like mares more but I think it's more hit and miss. So I'll be more cautious buying a mare. Geldings, some I like, some a bit "meh" but in my experience they seem to be mostly okay all round. I have a gelding and a mare now, I like my mare but she can be difficult in the way that it's just her being ridiculous. My gelding I like too, and he's much more levelheaded and easier.

    I have never met a mare I've gotten along with. I don't have much experience with stallions so I'm going to go with geldings.

    The mares I've dealt with have all been prissy and acted like they have a stick up their butt because they're mares and the two studs I've met have both been hot heads and really cocky.

    I love mares. Even though they can be moody and a handfull when in heat, they're much more faithful than geldings.
    Geldings are sweet and goofy with everyone, when you get a mare she'll give you everything she's got and more.

    I had a mare she refused to give me a good barrel run, but my boyfriend has her now & she gives it her all with him. -_- made me so mad! But, horses are like us, if they don't click with someone, they just don't click. I have a three year old stud & he gives his all at everything for me, but won't behave at all with anyone else. I've just had better experiences & rides out of geldings than mares, but my first horse was a mare & she taught me alot. (:

    Mares all the way!! I've been around some awesome geldings and stallions, but I clicked better with mares.

    I've always considered it gender-status. O.O

    Anyways I prefer mares. A little attitude can make things interesting now and then. However it depends on the horse so I can't say that for sure.

    I've had both but my better ones has been mares. I have no problems with mares. Everything being equal, I'd take a mare every time.

    I'm a gelding gal, but if a mare came along that I got along with well, i'd possibly consider a mare.

    I never used to get on with mares, but that was my problem, I was lazy. My geldings are all pretty easy going, but it seems every mare has to be wooed, and you have to win them, once you do they are awesome.

    I've really only had geldings and I think there great, the only mares I've had are old except a Shetland x Welsh and she can be very moody at times.
