Best Answer

A horse can be gelded at any age depending on what the situation is. Many people claim that if you wait until the horse is fully grown that the horse will have more muscle. Others say that if you geld a horse early (10 or 12 mos) that he will grow taller. I'm not sure that there is any truth to any of that. I would recommend gelding at an early age if you are going to geld. I don't think that there is any reason to leave a horse a stud if your intent is to geld him at some point. I geld at about a year old.
