My mare is coming up on 90 days in foal, and I had some questions about how much exercise is OK, and am I putting the foal at risk if I ride while it is hot? I live in AZ and the temps are hitting in the low 100's now. I ride the mare early in the morning before it hits 90, and make sure she does not get to sweaty. I do basic dressage and a little jumping. I know the dressage is good for her but what about the jumping? At what point in here preg. should I stop jumping? And, as it is only going to get hotter before it gets cooler, what temp should be my cut off for riding? We have really low humidity here, <10%, but the arena is not covered and we are in the direct sun. This is my first foal and I was hoping some of the more experienced folks out there could give me some info. Thanks!

Hi Kate,

My mare is curently 72 days pregnant as of today. I ride her every other day I just try not to stress her out or over work her. She lets me know when she is done. I rode her up to being 8 months pregnant last year, but I was also not riding her real hard either just enough to keep her going. I don't usally ride her when the temperature goes higher than 85 degrees, this is just my preference. I hope this helps. Unfortunatley I don't ride english so I am not sure about the jumping. Hopefully someone on the board can answer this question for you.
