I love horse back riding
and have an opportunity to go this weekend, can someone please let me know if they did any riding in the first semester?
I love to horse back ride too! I never did it while pregnant but most physical activity is safe during your first trimester and really throughout your pregnancy. I wouldn't go getting on a horse at 8 months preg or anything but I think you should be fine as long as you are careful. If you still have concerns you can always run it by your doc.
I rode in my first trimester. Didn't in my second or third mostly because it was available to me at the time. I've seen people show horses well into there second. As long as your careful and know the horse isn't going to buck you off you should be fine.
I think you should check with your doctor first just to be safe! Other women may have been OK to do it but everyone is different.
I'm going to talk the the doc. I might just do ground work with the horse instead, I don't know the horse that I have a chance to ride... If it were my old horse or my family's I would be all over it. Better safe than sorry.
i LOVE horseback riding. I grew up on a horse farm and rode quite often. however, I did not continue into adult hood...so I did not do any riding while pregnant.
I do too! We had a horse my whole life growing up! But I never rode while pregnant.. I would assume it's like anything else.. so long as you have been doing it already? But I would always check with your doctor!
