My instructor is 6 months, and she never hesitates to climb on Love to demonstrate something to me... It then results in her husband (my other instructor) yelling at her from the other end of the farm to "get off the **** horse!"

The important thing is know your horse, but remember they still have that fight or flight instinct.

Was at labor and delivery last night due to some sharp pains I had been having. Turned out to he a bladder infection and the nurse told me to take it easy for a while. When my husband said "that means no horse riding!". The nurse quickly
Stopped him and said that horse riding in itself posed no risk and that if it's something I do regularly to go ahead and continue. Win!

Hahaha! Poor guy thought he totally had an out! Lucky you :)

The well-known saying “chestnut mare, beware!” is not completely without foundation. Some go further and add “chestnut Thoroughbred mare, beware!”

My best friend rode with her first baby literally up until 2 weeks before he was due- the doc said it would help! She was back to riding 4 weeks later. With baby #2 she rode up until her due date and was back again 4 weeks later. Shes crazy.

Nah, he knows I'll ride regardless and he knows my horse is safe but he gets a huge kick out of it when doctors or nurses say no because I get all feisty and argumentative over it! Lol

One of the girls at my barn is a little over 7 months, but barely showing. And she rides 3 days a week, usually. She knows her horse, and won't ride anyone elses at the moment.

I'm in the process of trying to find out if I'm pregnant (1st test was confusing, taking another tomorrow.) But right now this nausea is what is keeping me from riding. I feel that as long as you know your horse, and you don't do anything stupid like jumping creeks, you're ok.

By confusing I'm assuming you mean the control line was dark and the result line was extremely light? If so then CONGRATS a line is a line lol. If tomorrows isnt clearer feel free to post a pic of it or you can email it to me (poco1220@gmail.com) if you'd like a second opinion!

Well, rather than a single horizontal line (-) I got a vertical dark line, and then a faint horizontal. Pretty sure its a positive. Same results, twice, lol. Looks like we're having a lil one. Going tomorrow to the dr to confirm, though.
