Hi I have just got my mare back from stud and the vet is out in 21 days to do a test to see if she is pregnant. But what I wanted to know was when should I stop riding her? And after she has had the foal how long will I have to wait to ride again? I asked my vet and he said she will let you know when she is ready which really doesnt help me 1 bit lol so I asked a friend whos mare has had a few foals, and she said she rode her mare up to the last days of pregnancy (very lightly) I wont do this. And she said she left her with the foal about 3 weeks than started ground work for about a week, then rode again after that week. I don't know but it sounds a bit soon to me as the foal would only be a month old has anyone had experience with this?
