I love mares. While they can be a bit testy and bratty at times, once you form a bond, thry will jump through fire for you.
I love using The Herbal Horse’s moody mare essectial oil stuff. It works magic on every mare I have tried, and it is calming.
Sometimes on a green horse, I like to ask for the canter over a ground pole or a small cross rail.
Hope this helped.
