She finally came properly into season and has been insemminated several times this week. She's going to be coming back to me once she's been out of season for a couple of days but I was wondering if I need to be careful about the change of grass quantity - at the stud she's been in a field with a decent amount of grass and they put haylage out. My field is considerably less lush and I definately won't be putting haylage out - she's a cob who puts weight on looking at green paint, however I'm a little worried that going from lots of food to not much might cause her to loose a pregnancy if there's one there. I know I'm worrying over ever little thing but if it's a risk I can probably arrange for a field with some more grass but due to her weight if it's not going to cause a problem then I'd rather have her on less grass.

Also at what point is it safe to start riding her again - by riding I mean we walk out with a little trot work for an hour tops, not to the point she's getting sweated up or anything.

You're micro-managing! :-) Would it normally affect her to change pastures? If not, why would it affect her now?

As far as riding her, if she was being ridden before, she can continue to be ridden to the same level. The only thing you will want to avoid for the first 35 days is getting her excessively hot - and I do mean excessively. If her core temperature is raised, it can have a negative effect on the pregnancy, but regular riding in regular weather will not be an issue (where we are in Oklahoma where the temperatures can reach 115 F, it can pose a problem though!!).

absolutly I'm micromanaging - this is my and her first and I have a tendancy to worry and I micromange when I'm worried, it's my coping mechanism

Riding wise we definately don't need to worry about excess heat - today topped at 17C/low 60'sF and that is the hottest day we've had for weeks, apparently it's summer but we've still got thick rugs on some.
She's only in light work as she damaged a tendon in her leg at the beginning of the winter so is in light work for the next year or so, so def won't be doing anything to the point at which she's going to overheat
