You can pretty much ride the whole time, but I would keep it to light riding the last 3 months when they can start getting uncomfortable carrying all that weight around.

I think it's probably good to exercise your horse lightly most of the pregnancy, but I would consult with your vet about that, just to be sure what he/she would recommend. Light exercise would help to keep your horse in better condition.

most mares, if already in shape, can continue to ride well into pregnancy.

my mare was uncomfortable at 7 months so I stopped riding her and let her be a momma to be.

it all depends on the horse, but a fit, active mare will usually have an easier time foaling and less complications.
