First do not ride for about the first 30 days. This give the mare time for her rib cage and muscles to come back for foaling. By that time the foal is older and can handle a bit more work but would not do a do much more then a walk with the foal at this point. Depending on where you are at and how safe it is to leave the foal loose vs ponying it. I have done both with foals.
