Smile Can a Pregnant mare jump and gallop?

Hey everybody, I was wondering if my pregnant mare should be jumping and galloping? The person that has the stallion said that if she did she might dissolve the foal, but don't horses in the wild gallop and stuff? I was wondering this because she gallops and jumps over fallen trees out in the paddock

Foals don't "dissolve"..but she could abort the foal. If she is doing it herself then it is probably fine. Horses usually know their limits as far as mare is only 8 1/2 months preggo and doesn't even enjoy trotting If you are making her gallop/jump then it is probably a bad idea depending on how far along she is. Normal riding exercise is good for pregnant mares...but over doing in the last months..never a good idea...

How far along is she?

Sweet thanks!

At 2 months, she herself proably isn't feeling much different. Let her tell you when she's ready to stop exercising

Yeah 2 1/2 months isn't far along at all. She'll stop when she feels like stopping! How many pregnant humans do you see running a marathon?

At only 2 months, almost 3... she will be fine. If I remember right, after 7 months you are supposed to slow down on the excersize. Some say not to even ride, but others say you can ride, just only a little stroll.

Just don't push your mare to hard and I think she will be fine for a few more months.
