Hi, my name is Liz, I am 17 and I want to become a horse breeder. I would just like to know from all of the other horse breeders how they got started. Because I have no idea were to start! Should I buy mares first and breed them to other stallions then buy a stallion, or buy a stallion first with mares? And should i buy a colt then raise him to a breeding stallion?

Sorry for all the questions!

My advise would be to get a job at a breeding farm. Breeding horses is not as easy as a lot of people think. I/m not saying you think it's easy just talking to you. How much experience do you have with horses? IMO NEVER start with a colt or stallion. Start with mares. Breed them to other peoples studs at first. This way if you happen to decide that breeding is not for you it is always easier to sell mares that studs. I will be glad to help in any way I can. If you have any more questions let me know.

Hi! just playing through and noticed your question regarding start up on a breeding
farm first I would enroll in a reproduction
class usually held at different university around the country. These normally cost around 500 dollars and the course last for around 3 days
and will cover all aspect of both live cover and artificial insemination tec.We have been breeding horses here at Double S Farms for 4 generations
and have found these short coureses very informative and help to our new employees
...................Good Luck
