That is great that you are still able to ride while preg. I didnt ride when I was , First child and a young horse , wasnt a good combo so I had to sell my young horse....My daughter is now 10 and we both enjoy horses and ride . Congrats!

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

I think you look great! I rode for about 5 months when I was pregnant. I rode Pistol on occasion, did NOT ride Blue but he was barely broke. Mostly I rode the old black horse who was the safest horse in the world. I miss him... (The only reason I quit riding was because husband told me no... and I had to respect his decision)....

And love like crazy"

Yeah, I did give up training two horses because they were unpredictable. My poor husband knows better than to even suggest I stop riding, hahaha! The horse came before the husband did. ;)

I rode until my eighth month as well. I was 39 and pregnant with my first (and only) but had a happy, healthy textbook pregancy. I had a wonderful OB/GYN who said 1.) given my previous skill level 2.) a safe, well trained horse; light pleasure and trail riding was fine. He did ask that I not jump or get my heart rate above a certain level. He also said that I would know when it was time to stop. I kept *saying* I had ridden for the last time but kept getting on for one last ride. The last, last ride was when a student was doing a really awful job riding *my* horse and I got on him to demonstrate something. I was so big I had trouble balancing on the fence rail long enough to mount; so I decided that was truly the last time.

I also was back riding three weeks after delivery. Good luck to you!

Very nice looking horse. I can understand why you both did well. Look good for being as far along as you are. Great to still be riding too.

I stopped for my husband at five months with our first daughter. The horses came first for me too, but I felt he has just as much say as it's his child, too. ;) By the time the third came along he didn't say anything so I kept riding!

I'm in love with you two, haha (in a non-creepy way).
Whenever I tell people we're engaged and how old we are they immediately freak out. They always tell me I'm too young and I need to get out in the world, and the one I hate is "you don't know what love is at your age". I've been in college, and have met so many people, I still am madly in love. We never have major fights and in out four years haven't even talked about having a break.





Off topic but I'm in the same boat is you :) My husband and I were 19 & 20 when we got engaged - 21 we are married and purchased our first home. Everyone, including his whole family, is very very dead set against this. It made it hard, but not impossible. I feel its the way things are suppose to be :)

I am very happy to see that things can work....lol. I am about to be 19 and my boyfriend is about to be 20. We've been together for a year and a half, but we've been friends since I was only 8. I'm in college, and although we do plan on getting engaged and married he wants to wait to even ask til I finish my degree. He and my dad both worry that if I woudl give up to be with him sooner. (they're wrong, but they can't get that thought out of their heads...and they talk to each toher way too much...lol)

Everybody says that even once I am out of college we will be too young and will have gotten together too young, but I believe that we'll get through it.
