Im looking for opinions from others on riding a newly pregnant mare, less than 30days. This is a mare that has been in constant training 6days awk. & hauled wkends to trainer. Some say no some say if she used to it why not? Your thoughts?. Thanks

My sister rode her mare (lightly) up until about 3 days before she foaled, and no problems - the key I think is MODERATION!! Do not overdo - do not overly stress her, etc. Good luck!

I usually take it easy on them for the first couple of weeks, minimize stress. After that I'll ride them, as the previous poster said, moderately. Exercise is good but overdoing it probably isn't. I'll keep them in work up until about 7 months.

I've been riding my mares right up to the 10 month stage. Lightly of course. And they seem to do great with it. I've also been told that exercizing the mare with make for an eaiser birth.

Hi guys,

I agree with all the other posters, it is quite safe to lightly work her up until near birth if done properly. I think it depends on the horse some mares are more sensitive than others, you really have to just wait and see how she goes. She should be okay, good luck and congratulations.
