I've always ridden geldings, the one mare I was put on was a complete psycho that no one wanted to ride. (I suffered from a little bit of 'black stallion syndrome' and thought I could tame her lol) Since then, I've always gotten along better with geldings and I assumed that's what I'd always have. But this weekend I'll be riding my boss's mare for the first time, and I'm SO excited because I've completely fallen in love with her. She's drop dead gorgeous, but she is very mare-ish. She doesn't get along with any other females, just the old friesian gelding next to her. She lunges at other horses in the aisle, threatens to bite when you put her blanket on, etc. Yet I still love her personality because she has an extremely sweet and loyal side, she really wants to please you. Who knows how the ride will go this weekend but I love her when I'm on the ground at least!
Might as well go look at this horse, what could it hurt?
