Re: Would you do a trail ride in the third trimester?

Also an experienced rider here.

No, I would not.

I've had two very bad falls in my ridding career. One was while slowly trotting along on my sure footed, incredibly sane horse that I trust with my life, over a manicured grass lawn. She just had a freak accident and tripped over herself. She ended up falling to the ground and landed on her side with me still in the saddle, so she fell on top of me. I wasn't pregnant at the time but always thought that was a situation that many women would have felt comfortable riding in even if they were pregnant and it's likely they would have lost the baby over it. Riding is dangerous even if your doing the safest thing you can possibly do while up in the saddle.
