I want to breed my mare, but I she is an amazing horse and I don't want to give up being able ride and barrel race her. I know some people say you can ride a horse till the day they have a foal, but is it healthy? And could I still run barrels on her? I mean obviously I would not be running barrels when she is all fat and stuff but how long could I ride her hard till its unsafe?
She is such a great horse and I want a foal out of her so when she is no longer around I will hopfully have something at least half as good as her. What do you all think??
