A lady who I use to ride horses for bred 3 of her mares a few years ago, they were going to be broodmares. The ladys horse, we will call her Jay, used her horse for 4-H every sunday while she was pregnant. She rode her hard (barrel racing, loping a lot, etc) up until the day before she foaled. The foal turned out happy and healthy, and is now a 2 year old.
I don't recommend riding her that far along, maybe stop at least 2 months before she is due, or lighten up on riding
Jay, bred her horses again and still continues to ride them while they are pregnant.
All three horses, now broodmares, are still ridden as they are pregnant, but are given a half year off, after they have their foals.
