Stallions are often shown together in the same ring at horse shows , particularly in halter classes where their conformation is evaluated. Domesticated stallions are trained and managed in a variety of ways, depending on the region of the world, the owner's philosophy, and the individual stallion's temperament. The advantages to individual confinement include less of a risk of injury to the stallion or to other horses, controlled periods for breeding mares, greater certainty of what mares are bred when, less risk of escape or theft, and ease of access by humans. Many boarding stables will refuse clients with stallions or charge considerably more money to keep them.
