I know this is really, really late coming in but in case someone is reading with a similar problem...

GELD HIM

A good stallion makes a great gelding. And from the sounds of it, this guy isn't good to start with and needs some serious reduction of extra baggage.

He definitely shouldn't be out with a mare, allowing him to breed her. A rank stud does NOT get better with age and breeding - he gets worse because he is learning consistently that he can get away with it.

Gelding will not change learned behaviors - that will take training. But the loss of the levels of testosterone you're dealing with, will make the training a good bit easier on you and him. After gelding him, go back to some serious ground work basics and get control. If you don't know how, there are plenty of good instructional materials - written and video - that can help you.

And last but not least, it's good that you realize you don't know a lot about horses. So step back, buckle down and start learning - and don't be breeding until you've done some serious learning!!! We all make mistakes, and there's no time like today to start learning from them and moving in a better direction!
