    Not sure what you are asking. If a mare can be ridden with a foal at her side? If a mare can be ridden when pregnant?

    Yes, as long as the horse is trained to ride, there is no problem with a riding horse being a breeding horse. And vice versa, as long as the mare isn't heavy in foal or just recently foaled.

    Just to clear things up, take off the "er" and add "ing".. kind of.. anyways:
    "breeder" = breeding horse
    "rider" = riding horse
    "rancher" = ranching horse

    Foal
    Yes I have several horses in foal (pregnant) it is ok to ride them just don't run them hard and don't kick them hard or spur them..also I would suggest to stop riding them 6 weeks before delivering the foal and not to ride till 6 weeks after foaling.also one of the signs that they are getting to far along to be rode is when they start to nip/bite at you when saddeling or riding that means they are hitting the point of being uncomfertable.other than that it is okay to ride them

    Our mare hit that point at about 7 months :). I was expecting to be able to ride her longer, but she is just silly about it. All I can figure is that she has a very light/delicate looking frame, and it bothers her sooner. ?? :) Oh well, we will just pick it up again a while after she foals :) Probably will start refreshing with some lunge work/side reins at about 4+ weeks.

    Foal
    Yes that sounds like a good idea.i guess it depends on the mare on when its time of her being uncomfortable but she will sure let you know!! Some mares you can ride up to the last day of foal and there are no problems but I try to stick with the 6 week idea.if she's not acting out to badly I would still ride her in moderation.but anyways to me it sounds like your doing a fine job and know how to "read" your horse.
