    First off ~ Congrats

    I actually rode all the way until 2 days before I delivered. Just got picky about WHAT I rode and HOW I rode as I went along. Made a deal with the husband & doctor that I would scale back or cut things as I felt my center of balance going. How lucky for me that it never did **hehehehe** Though the last 2 months I stuck to my steady-eddies & reliables. Spent the weekend before my induction attempting to get my water to break on its on by riding ~ my girls were taking bets on who was driving me to the hosptial when it did (didnt work). I may not have been able to keep food down for 90% of my pregnancy, but I sure as heck stayed in shape. Though I will admit that I think I got back in the saddle AFTER delivery a bit too soon (was back in the saddle working 9 days later - should have held off another week).

    Congrats!
    I know a lady who showed her saddlebreds all during her pregnancy until it wasn't comfortable anymore. :)

    Congratulations :)

    After a few months, I wouldn't. That's just me though.

    I've never been pregnant though haha

    I rode up until I was 5 months along...I wanted to keep going, but when our newest horse tossed the TINIEST crowhop at me and I flew onto her neck from my out of wack center of gravity..I figured I better stop. I know a girl who was cutting well into her 8th month. Even one a saddle for that season. So its up to you< but I agree that for the sake of your babe, you should stick to the easy horses.

    Green Broke
    With the first, I rode up until a week before I delivered. Of course, I was cleaning a stall when I went into labor with the first as well. I absolutely terrified some old men who were helping my hubby build the (at that time) new barn. They were putting up trusses and watching me riding and the comments I heard and the lecture I got afterwards was priceless. They were all convinced the ride was going to force me into labor, lol.

    With the second, I stopped riding at about 5 months, because I was infinitely more uncomfortable after having a cesarean with the first and having a LOT of pain from the scar tissue. It was bad enough by 7 months that I couldn't drive over a speed bump without tearing up, no way cold I have ridden at that point.

    My doc was great though. The nurse scolded me for wanting to ride and the doctor told her to hush, that riding wouldn't hurt me, only the falling off would. Then he looked at me and said, "don't fall off".

    I chose to give it up for a little when I found out.

    My Soctor told me I was fine, so long as I didn't get hurt. So horses being live animals with their own brains and all I picked better safe than sorry.

    I was 11 weeks along (about) when I found out I was pregnant.

    My little dude is 6 months old now and was WAYYYY worth putting horses aside for a few months. I don't regret not riding, that's for sure.

    I literally just found out Im pregnant like 2 days ago. I plan on riding as long as I can. Its currently my only form of "exercise", and I take lessons. If Im not feeling safe I have no problem not doing something.

    Trained
    I was training a young horse up until I was 5 months pregnant, then sold him. Winter was coming so I didn't ride after that. Next pregnancy, I rode & doubled my 4 yr old on a dead broke mare a girl kept at my place until it was too awkward to mount, about 7 months pregnant.

    ETA- Congrats!!! I am so happy for you!!

    Congrats!

    It very much depends on how you feel. I rode through my 1st trimester (even took lessons, and went to the show ), but closer to the end I started vomiting while on horse (and when in car too), so after couple incidents I quit riding (had to use a trainer to ride my mares).

    If your horse is quiet, you are a good rider, you've been riding regularly for while (several times/week), AND your pregnancy goes well there is nothing wrong in continuing riding as long as you feel comfortable (at least per my doctor).

    I kept grooming them (including picking feet) and saddling for the trainer past my due date. Haha! And I got back on horse 4 weeks after the delivery (although it did hurt I have to say).
