    I don't think you're nuts at all! Why not do it! You have had a healthy pregnancy right, and you considered a high risk pregnancy right?

    I think it would be great for you and the baby, just be careful the horse you take doesn't bully you around(kick you, shove you etc). What you will be doing is really not any different than what you would be doing at home or around your home. There might a little bit of running, but I really wouldn't consider that of any significance.

    Have fun!

    Thanks! I'm going to keep at it and try a local show in a month or so. I found a jacket at Hobby Horse that I think will work. I'll just have to move the button up and get a super long slinky for underneath. It's kinda pricey, but if I can move the button back and use it next season than maybe I can justify it. I'll take some belly pics for you!

    Physical activity is great during pregnancy - whatever you do when you're not pregnant, is fine to do when you are pregnant, as long as you're comfy, etc. I HATE the "you're pregnant so you should be a couch potato" mentality. Unfortunately, some women buy into it. I do some prenatal care and nothing bugs me more than a perfectly healthy, but whiney, pregnant girl who acts like she's dying the whole time. Pregnancy may be uncomfortable, but it is not an illness or a crisis.

    I know I posted this on another thread about pregnancy a while back, but here is my take on pregnancy. Pregnancy usually ends with something we call "Labor". Labor means work - and it is hard, physical work to deliver a baby. How are you supposed to do nothing for 9 months and then finish up with hours and hours of hard physical labor? It makes sense for you to stay as active as possible, doing what you love! Would you run a marathon after not running at all for 9 months?

    If it is men that give you crap about showing while pregnant, remember, most men are wusses - they'd never survive pregnancy, let alone labor!

    GO FOR IT! It seems times havent changed that much, people still have the mentality of women doing things while being pregnant unacceptable. In the 50's/60's women were forced to give up their job if they got pregnant!

    The way I see it is that by having a baby your already giving up alot of things, why should you have to give up your one true passion?

    If the judges have a problem with it then its too bad they can't look at the big picture.
