A Gelding is a Castrated Horse.

Racehorses are gelded to enhance their potential to be a winner on the track.

Before being gelded, some colts are unruly or have medical conditions that hinder their training and running ability.

The primary reason trainers advise owners to geld their horse is to change the attitude of the horse.  A stud colt is like a teenage boy with hormones flooding his body, and he is unruly and hard to train.

There are medical reasons a horse needs to be gelded. One such reason is "Cryptorichid," this is when a horse's testis fails to drop into his scrotum,  This condition can lead to walking and running problems.
