I agree. We need to know what's actually going on.

Honestly just trying to find the right vet to do it he only has one testicle atm and he dropped VERY late the vet around here asked us to wait for a while and we did but only one testicle ever dropped. So I am saving and trying to find a vet I trust to cut him because obviously this one isn't going to be of much assistance. I was just wondering if his behavior had anything to do with the stud fact or for other reasons

I am concerned that if you don't understand the issue or why he is reacting this way then the fact that he IS a stallion could make him dangerous to you and to others.

My advice would be to geld him and get a trainer. If he's just too amazing to geld - sell him to someone who knows how to handle him.
I do have a handler/ trainer the problem is He rides perfect until he sees another horse running ( doing barrels, pasture, etc) I just wondered if he was doing it because he is a stud or because of some instinct to herd

My concern here is for your safety, the safety of your horse, and others you may ride with. He is a young horse and I'm guessing still pretty green. Stallions aren't good horses for inexperienced people. Without an understanding of basic horse behavior you are leaving yourself open to a lot of problems and may end up with a horse that will need a lot of retraining down the road.
My humble advice would be to geld him and get some help from those with experience.

He's not green, he just hasn't been exposed to much. He's been rode 4-6 times a week since he was 3 , but I usually do It after everyone has left the barn so I have no interuptions

Or, are you saying that a horse in another paddock is misbehaving?

I would suggest a stud chain, but only if you're familiar with how to use them properly. Also, I would employ the help of a trainer. Are you boarding him somewhere, or is he kept on your property? Is there a professional you can ask for help?
I am sorry I should have been a bit more clear, He will ride completely perfect with mares, other studs, and geldings ( he's never even yelled). Unless we're riding and they start running barrels or something of the sorts. He has been to the trainers and they couldn't help (the trainer never explained why) well the only reason I have gotten concerned about it because usually I can get him back under control, but this past time My trainer was riding him and another horse came by and they we're fine then the horse started running, my stud then proceeded to buck and my trainer hits funny and now has whip lash. I was just wondering if gelding him would fix our problem

No, gelding him won't fix the problem, but getting a different training approach will. Any problems in his behaviour will still be there after gelding him but he might be a little easier to handle without the extra testosterone fueling his brain. Also it's much a better situation if he bucks one of you off and gets away, a loose gelding poses less risk than a loose stallion.

Gelding him will be a great cure. It will prevent him from getting away from you and breeding or killing someone elses horse.

I have been lucky so far, I have never came off him, but my trainer did once and luckily he just stood beside the trainer waiting for him to get up ( by that time the man running the horse past him was gone) Thankfully

I'm being realistic, not rude. It's irresponsible to own that many horses when you can't afford to take him out of state to geld him. What happens if the others need a "specialist" to geld them, too? Then you're left with 3 studs.
