I have just remembered two incidents.
A cousin if mine had had several miscarriages and had trouble conceiving.
She started riding when on holiday with us and fell in love with it so continued when she got home.
She was 6 months pregnant before she knew she was and swears that it was because of the riding. I know that she stopped when it became uncomfortable. She has had three children with no problems and kept riding all she could.

The other was a friend who had two children and was having threats of a miscarriage with her third. She was climbing the wall with having to be careful and when she found the girl riding her husbands horse was allowing him to nap and get away with it, she started riding again and all the miscarriage symptoms disappeared.

Congrats!! Didn't read all the responses, but when I got pregnant in 2011 I planned on riding all through 1st tri since the baby is so small he/she is still protected by your pelvic cavity. I had mild spotting at around 7 weeks so I ended up calling it quits then since my Dr put me on modified bed rest. Next time around I plan on riding as long as possible as long as I don't have any complications :)

I know a lot of people will ride quiet horses throughout their pregnancies; I would hop on our old Appy mare every once in a while later in my pregnancy but we'd just mosey around

Thank you everyone for all the responses!!! So far I'm still working and night calving, although some days I'll stay home. Just saw the Dr. About a week ago, everything's good and Wade's healthy. So I guess I'll just keep it up! Thanks again!! :)

I rode in the early months of my first pregnancy before my belly started showing. I did take a spill though off our trustworthy horse just because he tripped and we both went down. Baby was totally fine, but like I said, I wasn't showing. When I got home hubby said no more riding. I think you'll just know if/when you no longer feel right about being in the saddle.

Congrats on baby!

Apparently I missed this the first time it went around. Congrats on the expected baby, Wanstrom.

Any news on when the little bugger might arrive....if he/she's not here already?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
