I am into trail riding and wanting to sart looking towards competitive trail and/or endurance trail. I will also be going on a lot of group rides. I'm looking to getting a new horse specifically for this in the future. My question is about owning a mare as a trail horse only because I know some geldings misbehave around mares in heat so I'm just wondering how that would go if she was in heat on a group trail ride with mixed genders. I find mares easier to bond with for me but a good horse is a good horse an would never be biased against a gender, I would go solely on the horse unless it would be a problem to do group rides with a mare in heat. Does anyone have experience with this? Is it a big enough factor to not consider a mare?
