Mare coming into season help

I have never owned a made before and am getting a Mustang mare who is six years old. I was curious when mares come into season. Is it every month like humans? Or is it like dogs where its every year/six months? She is not gonna be bred, but I thought I'd ask.

I don't know if there is a certain time frame or if it happens at any time. Sometimes you won't notice it depending on the horse.

Most healthy mares will cycle once every 21 days.

Didn't you just get rid of a horse you couldn't afford? And now you getting a new one?

My apologies. Verbal diarrhea strikes again. Some thoughts are left better in your head.

Along with what Dreamcatcher said some do year round and others will stop during the winter months. Just so you don't freak out when it happens, a lot of times their first 1 or 2 heat cycles after the winter off can be a little more intense than what will be normal for your mare.

Is this mare going to be okay for you to ride, considering the health condition you have mentioned before? I own a six year old mare myself, so that just concerned me a little.

My mare is in heat every other week it seems. I live in California though and we aren't having much of a winter so far (again), so it's pretty normal for mares here to cycle all year long and fairly frequently. The other mares at my barn are the same. Mine will come into heat for only two or three days and then go back out, probably every 8-10 days or so. Another mare out there seems to be one week on, one week off. Then there are two Saddlebreds who never seem to come out of heat. It really just varies from horse to horse, probably based on a number of factors.
