geldings are for riding, mares should be kept barefoot and pregnant.. Oh wait did I say that out loud?? Mares just require a little more attention, keep an eye on them esp aroud heat time. I know a few trail guides that no longer allow mares, kinda stupid. Almost all bad behavior can be trained out, and I have been around some awesome mares.. but then I have been around some real witches.. when I was a kid, I was in 4h with out racehorse broodmare. I won several times with her, she was great. Then we had a TB mare recently that wasn't worth the lead to cast the bullet to shoot her.. been around fewer reallly bad geldings, but they are around..
