Tips on first ride the other horses

Hello, Sun. I am going to take Thunder on his first ride with another horse, were going to start out with one gelding. Thunder is 4 years old, a little above green brokeand a stallion. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips on keeping me safe during his first ride with another horse, or any other tips. Thanks!

If you just lead him on ground that'll be the safest.

It's rather hard to suggest anything without knowing how much riding you've done and how broke the horse is (and how he behaves with other horses being a stud).

Well as far as leading him past other horses in the feild he does great, but this is all the exp. I have around other horses, him being on one side of the fence and the them on the other. He's not studdish at all my mare is more studish than him lol, she calls to him the other side of the farm and he doesnt even call back. BUT I have no clue how he will be on a ride, I have been riding about 1 time a week all summer prior to that he had about 10 rides on him last summer.

I'd start in arena personally rather than go to the open. If something goes wrong and he'll run free (knock on wood, of course!) it may be a big problem.

Bring another horse to the arena (may be even without the rider, just someone holding other gelding) and see how he goes. I know studs can behave like perfect gentlemen (and I've met such studs in person), but every time one had to put good amount of training into it.

I have almost no experience training or working with studs, so hopefully more experienced people will give their insights.
