Yes go for it! Just do what feels best for you (ensuring you are well 'protected' as others have stated)

I actually enjoy riding, i find it good to concentrate on something else. So if you feel like riding ride, if you feel like skipping a day or week then that is perfectly fine as well.

I ride everyday during my period (I know, weird..) But I find that the movement of the horse actually soothes my cramps! I get really bad back pain and it helps with that too, when I am on a horse, I totally forget it is that time of month and then I get off...*sigh* I do prefer pads just because I ride bareback a lot and am not totally experienced in it yet and have a nightmare daydream of coming down hard on their withers....must I continue?

I think it's a legitimate question... I've often wondered whether certain horses are affected by the smell of blood. I know I must smell "different" to them when I have my period.

There was a mare I was supposed to try and she would have NOTHING to do with me. She had always been easy to catch but when I went out to get her, she ran away and even kicked at me. The people at the barn were shocked. I've often wondered if it was because I smelled strange to her. Maybe I just caught her on a bad day. Maybe she wouldn't have liked me regardless of what I smelled like.

(Random side note: I'm a bit shocked at the talk of doubling/tripling up on tampons. Is that even possible? Surely it isn't advisable? Aren't the extras jammed in places they shouldn't be jammed? I'm with the poster who said they'd be soaking in the tub rather than trying to ride if they needed to double/triple on tampons. Or in the ER with anemia, perhaps? Sheesh, and I thought I had heavy flows needing an extra plus tampon and overnight pad!)
