my mom rode her horses while pregnant with me. her doctor told her to ride until it was uncomfortable. i do belive there is a connection. I love to ride horses. whats interesting is that she rode while pregnant with my oldest sister, and me. we both love to ride. she dednt ride with my other older sister because it was a touchy pregnancie and she didnt ride with my younger sister because my oldest sister was always on the horse!!! anyway, those two dont like horses. i belive theres a connection.
my opinion would be to ask your doctor and really think about wether or not your horse is "safe". i would ride my gelding pregnant because i ca truly trust him. i wouldnt even think about riding my mare though, she is too unpredictable.
Just my thoughts

I would venture to say it's a case by case personal decision. What shape are you in to start? Previous difficulties? What kind of riding? Is your horse a Pokey Polly or Spooky Spunky? Exercise while pregnant is very important - otherwise it's like saying rest up for the big game - for nine months! LOL

I am fully convinced, however, that vacuuming and doing the dishes from 60 days after conception is high risk behaviour that needs to be stopped by all concerned Mommas-to-be. Hmmmm, maybe I could sponsor a ride-a-thon to help spread the word..... need a lot of mounting blocks by port-a-johnnies for all the preggo bladders ....geeze, what a nightmare.

You know, It might be good for some people to ride while they're pregnant. Some people find riding their horse really unstressing and while you're pregnant, I'm sure you're stressed out heaps, so that might help them! Also, it's soothing, maybe the little kid inside that belly is already pretending to have an imaginary horse!
