I have a mare here that has not yet been started under saddle.

I was wondering if it's safe to start her lightly under saddle if she's in foal?

This is a maiden mare that "absorbed" once already, could the stress of starting her under saddle cause her to abort the foal?

I wouldn't take the risk unless she was broken properly. It may put her under a little bit of stress. If you do start her under saddle do lungeing before you ride to make sure of no attitude problems and don't be tempted to do more than what would be responsible. You really should consult a veterinarian about this.

We actually did this last year, it was OK'd by our vet, and the trainer knew she was in foal. We waited until after 30 days to send her, due to the possibility of her losing the pregnancy because of social stress, she is a homebred and had never left the property, so that was a distinct possibility.
There were no problems with her or the foal.

i wouldnt break her in, until after shes had the foal.
breaking a horse adds pressure and sometimes stress. wich could cause problems for her and the foal. just work on ground work with her, then try lunging her for short periods, not asking too much of her
