Personally I love working with mares and stallions over geldings. All the mares I've worked with have been pretty easy to work with, as long as you keep in mind that just like a woman, mares will have days. The TB mare I owned bonded very strongly with me, and once that happened, she had her days, but for the most part she really wanted to make me happy, and trusted me. I currently have an Arabian mare who is very willing, and has an awesome personality. Most mares I've worked with have not been quite as laid back as a lot of geldings are, and obviously when they are in heat, you have to work at keeping their attention. I have heard a lot of people say that they really do not like mares, and would not own one, but I think that mares are awesome. They work well, they perform well, they bond very well with their handler, or owner, or whoever it is that does most of the work with them. The only problems I've ever had with mares have been the stopping at every horse and squirting when they are in heat. Otherwise I've only had positive experiences with them.
