    Any tips please

    Hi All,

    I'm new to this forum and looking for some advice.

    I'm 6.5 months pregnant so no longer able to ride and my groom and just got another job so I have decided to take my mare out of work until I can ride again.

    I have never had a horse that wasn't being exercised and was just wondering if anyone had had any problems.

    I hope to turn her out for at least 3 hours per day and she is on rubber matting with shavings on top.

    Does anyone know of good boredom breakers I could use for her.

    Any help greatly appreciated, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to stable management as I found out I was pregnant just as I got my horse, I love her so much so I couldn't let her go!

    Thanks guys

    Could you find someone to lease her to so she can be ridden and kept active. That way less stress for you and it could also help someone learn about animal care and what is needed in ownership.

    As for breakers there are toys but that will only help so much :/

    Congrats on the baby :)

    I agree w/ kait, have someone work her while your w/ the baby! (Congrats on baby!!) But if not, try lunging her or let her out in the paddocks more than 3hrs. &give her a jolly ball! :)

    There are seasoned riders who cannot afford a horse who would be more than happy to regularly ride and work with your horse during your 'leave of absence' and be great for your horse. My daughter is one of them.

    A problem I see is finding the right match. The owner needing the rider, and the rider needing the horse.

    Is there a website for this sort of matchmaking? Maybe a thread posted here would get word to someone in your area. I would think discipline/breed and location should be included in the thread title to draw readers in your locale.
