When my best friend was pregnant she rode with me every weekend until she was just about due. 2 weeks later.. she was standing in the isle holding her horse while the farrier trimmed feet and her water broke.
She waited till her 3 horses got trimmed and we B lined it to the hospital.
She gave birth 6 hours later to a healthy baby boy.
When she found out she was pregnant we slowed down on trails, kept to walking mostly and light trotting.
Every so often she would get a kick or two from the baby and really really have to pee...
Now, can you imagine a 6 month pregnant lady, squatting next to her horse on a trail. Just laughing historically as she trys to pee.. (priceless)
Her trail horse was a very comfortable morgan gelding. So she never flinched in the saddle.
I believe if I have the blessing of children I will most certainly ride pregnant until I can't get into the saddle.
Although my friend carried a soccer ball around, she barely looked pregnant.
I couldnt get that lucky LOL
