Riding During Pregnancy?

I have a friend that is pregnant and we were wondering how far through a pregnancy is it safe to be riding? Her horse is very calm, 15 year old, 14 hand horse. She does mostly arena riding and some trail riding.

Your best bet is to talk to your doctor (or her to hers in this case) but our drill leader was riding into her third trimester

Definitely have her talk with her care provider. I have high risk pregnancies so it isn't worth the extra risk to me. Most of my friends stopped after their first trimester.
