Castration

It is often discussed at which point of time young stallions should be gelded. Many owners postpone the castration for a long time in order to prevent the young gelding to lose much of his charisma. A legitimate consideration, though it should also be looked at from a different point of view.
A castration means an intrusion in the hormonal balance. Consequently, it has a strong impact on the metabolism and therewith also on the musculoskeletal system. So the owner of the young stallion fears a disturbance of the musculature and muscle build-up.

It is possible to counteract these disturbances and this way positively influence the future of the young stallion. The basic schooling of ARR causes a general transformation of the biomechanics of the flight animal into the biomechanics of an athlete. If this training is started in the age of 2 ½ to 3 years, we achieve a change in the movement pattern to the point of ‘carrying itself’ within three weeks. This means we attain a strong muscle build-up through straightening, a good circulation, an efficient conversion of the fed energy in musculature and a perfectly functioning metabolism.

The stallion is now in an optimal and athletic condition for castration. This means that the operation will now have a considerably smaller impact on the whole body.

After a break of approx. 8-10 days the training is resumed and continued for another 14 days in order to reflate the entire metabolism. Such stallions hardly lose any charisma and have the prospect of a happy and healthy future.
