The behavior under saddle should not be an indication of being proud cut. As stallions are fantastic under saddle when handled right. Anyways, I have a gelding who sired 10 foals, and was gelding at age 5. Can't be in with mares in heat. You can do a blood test I beleive to check testosterone levels.

Barbara,
Have you vet do an exam. If he is gelded, then he won't have any testicles unless there some something bizarre like he was a mono or crypto or something.

I doubt it. Sounds like he just has a 'tude. Even geldings have to be disciplined and mannered. How "broke" to ride is he supposed to be?

Also, I agree with Sam, if you are turning him out with mares in heat and he is teasing, trying to breed, etc., then my guess would be he was gelded later in life and already figured out or had bred some mares.

Seperate him from you mare, get some professional help with the manners and riding. You may need someone to take him for 90 days or so and get him under control. Sounds like he is spoiled and since I have no idea how broke he is supposed to be, it is hard to say what path to take, but it does sound like you need some professional help with him. Just because they are a gelding, doesn't mean they are automatically broke. It also doesn't mean they can't have an attitude and need discipline.
Would help to know some more about his history before giving advice.
