I know after she foals we will not do this and once I see sure signs that she will foal within the next few weeks then I will stop, the lady talked like they rode her all the time so she should be fit.
I don't see why she couldn't carry little kids for a while yet. If she acted uncomfortable then I'd quit but with my mares that are broke to ride, I ride until they're in the 10th month if they don't act like it's an imposition. Granted, it's all stuff like you're talking about, just a gentle walk for a moderate amount of time, but I do ride 'em.
