One of the biggest mistakes that beginner horse breeders make is breeding their favourite horse simply because it’s the one they like the most – and it often leads to a number of problems that could have been easy to avoid.
Depending on the reason for breeding, there are plenty of factors to consider, and if they’re ignored, it can lead to the horse becoming “unwanted”, something that has become a serious problem around the world. These are some important points to consider before becoming a long-term breeder.
Breeding horses is a very specialised and complicated undertaking, requiring years of training, and drawing from a long, rich history that goes back hundreds of years. When adding the element that the animal is intended for the purpose of specific sports such as racing, the task becomes even more advanced and specialised.
