I am wanting to breed my mare via AI this
spring.

I am worried because I live very rural and my Vet says she is not good with horses.
I live rural 1.5 h NE of Reno NV most vets do not want to make the drive out here to
Lovelock.
I have never palpated a mare and are afraid of doing it (as not to injure the mare)
However I have come to understand that you must find the ovarian entrance to
deposit the Sperm there with the tube.

I wonder if there are classes that can teach you this to safely locate the ovarian entrance.

I do have a stallion that is a great teaser so timing I think will not be a problem.
Any and all input on this would be greatly appreciated.

I would say that you are in desperate need of such a course, and should not venture to breed your mare without it!

You do not seek the "ovarian entrance" to inseminate the mare, but rather the uterine entrance - the cervix.

Rectal palpation is OUT!! One has to do 100+ guided palpations in order to become proficient at palpating - that means having someone palpating or ultrasounding right ahead or behind you and telling you what you are feeling. If you do the 100+ guided palpations, that will give you adequate proficiency. To become good, and keep being good at it, you will need to do many, many more. So not only is there an issue with the distinct risk or rectal tear (and death) of the mare, but also the need for someone to teach you, and the mares to practice on. Most lay people do not palpate...

There are courses. We teach one. Please see our courses page for details and locations (follow that link). Even if you don't come to one of ours, go to someone's - your mares are in danger without it!

I have two maiden mares I plan to AI this spring...I am planning to have the vet check their readiness for breeding this week.

What is the exam likely to show? And what are my options depending on the condition of each mare? I have breed several mares before but only after their cycles were confirmed. In those days I had a stallion to tease with also....this year I must depend on observation and science.
