She will wee(squirt) at the boys if she is in season and her stable will be alot wetter and have a strong smell. They can get tempremental when in season and get aggressive although not all mares are like that. It should only last for about a week but they come in season every 3 weeks during the spring/summer, roughly from March to october. You can still do everything as normal just don't take her near a stallion.

Yes you will be able to ride her normally. Some mares react badly and get very sore around their ovaries but they are quite rare.

yes you can ride, just be prepared that she may be badly behaved as distracted by the boys and may call out more than usual!

it's not the same as wee, if you look (grose i know!) it is a bit white in colour and thicker. trying to tell the boys they are ready to mate!

my horses are my medicine, without them im even more crazy!

 I used to have a mare that did this...earned her a rather nasty nickname down at my old livery yard ¬¬ HAHA!

I had her on stroppy mare herbs with her feed, seemed to do the trick but don't know if it was actually helping or not tbh, I think getting her out on a nice long walk might calm her a little bit and if her tummy is sore might help?

Being a male with a mare don't help as she makes a pass at me and have to watch being squashed up the wall, gets quite frisky the mare not me, my wife thinks its funny as do the other ladies.

Oh my it could be me speaking.  I've had mares before but Sami  this year has been dreadful nothing nasty but has been bucking and wanting to be with her "bestest friend" a mare.  I've given in an not ridden and have put her on a supplement gradually things have settled down but next year will be better prepared.
