My mare is 5mons. in foal very happy about that! But due to time constraints I'av had to let her down . I will give her the winter off , how ever will trail ride her when possible & 5days awk. in the spring, she's not due till june. So how long after foaling does it take to get back to where you where in training? Thanks so much on opinions:-)

I give them anywhere from a week to a few months off after foaling depending on the difficulty of birth, any complications, etc., we've had foals that had limb deviations on restricted turnout so obviously their mothers couldn't be worked.
Start very light, just a few minutes of walk and build slowly, remember not to tire and stress the foal. Most foals whose mothers I've put back into work get pretty used to the idea quickly and don't run around like maniacs once they're accustomed to the idea, but there's been a few times especially when first returning the mare to work, that I've had to cut it short out of fear that the foal was going to work itself too much, not because the mare needed to stop. Also remember not to stress the foal in hot weather.
