    I know this thread isn't about your experience level but I have to say that I really don't think you're experienced enough to be training horses. I've been riding for 12 years, tons of experience with greenies and putting miles on all kinds of horses, and would NOT try to take on training from the ground up. I'm not at that level yet, and I don't have enough experience. I'll happily admit that. I think you should keep working with Chinga and a trainer for now. There will be a time in your life where you'll be more prepared for training. But it isn't not.

    Don't be offended by my post. But you're just not ready.

    ^ In a sense with some of the posts, I find have made a rude remark, I don't believe she is "not ready" But there is a no "too Ready"
    I take this thread, as her asking HOW a mare is, as she hasnt worked with a mare before.
    If she feels she can work with a horse, as she has with her horses, than let her try, if she feels she cannot get far enough with that horse, but has worked to the best of her ability to the extent she knows than great.

    But there is never a "too Ready" and there is no "not ready" in sense :)

    I just think, that she does have a right to try it if she likes and that if she asks simply how mares are for other people, like their temperment than that is completely fine.. there is no law against it. A question is stupid if you don't ask it. AT least she is asking right ?

    I will not own a mare. I find geldings far better. I also will not own a stallion and while I prefer to buy them I cut them the next day.
    RiosDad, thanks for your consern (sp) but I have had a hand in training many unbroke horses -- just little bits (at my old riding school) and I will have the help of my trainer when needed, and she is very experianced in training horses/ponies.

    Thanks TwisterRush, that post really inspired me that no matter what happens never give up, maybe I am not as experianced as most people who decide to work with un-broke horses, but I want to.

    TwisterRush: How can there never be a not ready? There's no shame in admitting you're not ready to do something, no matter what it is. I get your point, but that's your opinion. I posted mine and I'm fine with you posting yours. I never said she didn't have the right to do it. Heck, I can't stop her. Also never said she was stupid for asking about mares... I'll assume that part of the post was directed at RiosDad, although I agree with him 100%.

    Chinga: Glad you'll have help from a trainer, but it doesn't change my opinion. Will she be there personally with you to help you sort out any issues you have? I wish you all the best, really I do, I don't have to agree with your choice to hope you succeed. ;]

    As many have said above, the mares to be more compassionate & lovey than the geldings but, they do keep you on your toes, especially on "those days."I think your ready, if you believe your ready, especially since you'll have your trainers helping you.Have fun & good luck with them!:)

    I mean by 'not ready' as they are ready to an extent, but are unwilling to try it. So they will say it as ' im not ready' or such, in my opinion you are never not ready enough or just not ready in general, that doesnt mean to take NO PRECAUTIONS, of course when working with a 1000 lb animal you are going to have to watch everything you do, for your safety and the horses.
    But I do agree, there is no shame is saying something if you feel you arent ready but I agree, I have no problem with anyone posting their opinions, because I do have the right to post mine and that is fair right ? :)
    But I felt that some.. people had posted it abit rude in those terms.
    But yes most of it was directed at him, and I meant absoultely no offence to any of you. But again like we said, everyone has their opinions and right to try something :)
