I'm currently 24 1/2 weeks pregnant. I still ride nearly every day, clean paddocks, and do all our house and farm work along with taking care of my 2 1/2 year old. With my last pregnancy I rode up until my due date (literally as my son was 3 days late). I never had any issues. It's really a personal preference but as long as I'm comfortable on my horse I'll continue riding. I did give up jumping at about 20 weeks but Saturdays/Sundays are our trail riding days and it takes a decent canter to keep up with my husbands four wheeler on the open stretches, we creek ride, and we road ride - my doctor said not to do more than I was before but to continue doing activities I've done prior to pregnancy is no issue.
Challenge me, Dare me, or even defy me. But do NOT underestimate me...
For on the back of my horse nothing is impossible!
