With a view to achieving what?

A true hermaphrodite is not going to be fertile owing to an imbalance of chromosomes, so hormonal therapy is not going to beneficial with regards to reproduction.

Has the hermaphroditism been confirmed by karyotyping? If not, you may want to do that before you contemplate anything else.

My mare is behaving like a stallion. I know that she is infertile. I'd like to know if there is a treatment to quiet her down, so she is manageable around other horses.

This doesn't mean that she's a hermaphrodite! She could have something as simple as cysts. You should have her checked.

Had her checked, she has a very small uterus, enlarged clitoris and gonads. We were hoping she had cysts!

I would strongly recommend karyotyping to confirm the subjective diagnosis. It really is the only way to achieve absolute confirmation.
