Most doctors would say that horseback riding is not safe enough for you and your baby during your pregnancy. One of the main issues with riding a horse is the possibility of an accident. An accident can still happen even though you have been riding horses all your life.
Horses are unpredictable, you can still fall off the horse or be kicked even if you are an experienced horse rider. Placental abruption can happen because of the jostling motion when horseback riding. It is a complication where the placenta is set apart from the uterus.
Pregnancy only lasts for 9 beautiful months. It’s better to be safe than sorry. Let’s refrain from doing the things we love to do especially if it will hurt you and the baby during pregnancy. Always consult your doctor before doing anything that you are unsure of what will be the result.
