Sorry guys, this is my first mare that I have ever owned, so I have a lot of questions about them!

My mare may be pregnant (STILL waiting on the blood test from the vet), if she is, how long into her pregnancy is it okay to keep riding her? By riding her it is one dressage lesson a week then a couple of easy trail rides a week as well.

how long have you been waiting?

im pretty sure 9 months is about the norm, but you dont want to be working them very hard.

.....although there wassssssssssss this horse at the track. she apparently had gotten pregnant when she was turned out somewhere and no one knew (how you dont know when they get towards the end of the pregnancy is beyond me!) she ran a race one night, raced very very good (i think she was 2nd or 3rd) and they came in the next morning and she had foaled overnight!

crazyness..... obviously you dont want to do this, but it was an interesting story :lol:
