I would like to share a story of when we gelded my wife's horse. He was 3 years old. He wasn't really broke yet to ride. We were new to horses and the barn owner told us to hop on him. He said he won't buck because he was in pain from the surgery. Sooo wrong!
All we did was watch him to make sure he didn't get infected, which was surprising that he didn't because that stable was so nasty. He healed up fine.
The other gelding we had done was the same way. Just watched for an infection and he was fine too. He was done when we were at a different stable and he was outside 24/7.
Horses are pretty amazing about healing up without much help from us.
