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.
