Horse Breeding Information About Pregnancy and Foaling

Horse breeding is a specialized activity: most horse owners only confront it when they decide to buy from a breeder or when they want to carry on the bloodlines of a favored stallion or mare. There's so much to know; from the basics of estrus, the actual breeding day or days, pregnancy and gestation to the particulars of producing an ideal foal by choosing the right pair of breeding animals.
Equine breeding is also scientific: you can purchase reproductive material from a famous stallion or put your own superlative horse out to stud after serious genetic and physiological testing. You may decide to designate an especially worthy animal as a broodmare, selling or keeping the offspring to create a new line. Keeping animals healthy until foaling takes place requires another set of skills, supplies and a lot of information.

First, you want a saddle that was designed and built specifically for reining or cutting. Both of these designs have their individual advantages but remember, just because the manufacturer "calls" it a reining saddle doesnít mean it was designed "well" for reining.
