  • I have 5 kids and I rode my horses until I was so big that I couldn't ride in a saddle comfortably.

  • I own a Tennessee Walking Horse mare, and I ride both Saddle Seat(English) and Western, I also barrel race.
    I used to ride twice a week before I got pregnant, and my trainer and doctor told me I couldn't ride until after the baby came.
    Its absolutly NOT safe to ride while pregnant, but you can still go and brush them or lead them around.

  • I used to have a few. But i dont have any anymore i wish i did. I miss riding. I went riding about a month ago when i was about 6-7 months pregnant but it was a slow trail ride. We didnt do any running or anything like that. I think its fine to ride when your pregnant as long as you are careful.

  • I dont own horses. But my mother does and she did ride while pregnant. I can tell you that she had many miscarriages and only able to carry two pregnancies to term. Basically myself and my brother were practically born on a horse. lol.

    The Mc may or may not have been related to riding. I really cannot tell you for certain. What I can say is that it was the 70's and she was very much a hippy woman. lol. That includes all the partying and drugs she could get her hands on.
