The Good News

Thank you all for the congrats and well wishes on the DaBaby! My husband and I are thrilled.  We laughed, but thought it was rather fitting that after all this my trainer was the first person we told about me being pregnant.  She was and continues to be so incredibly excited for us, but we pretty much immediately had to address my riding situation.  The general rule is no jumping while preggo and it worked out as she said she was wanting to ground O anyway (for some attitude adjustments), so it worked out-two birds one stone.

What we don’t want.

What we want.

What we want.

See I found out I was pregnant right after that one time O decided that she wasn’t in the mood to jump at horse shows. So my trainer and I both started trying out lots of ideas on how to improve her confidence, and ridability with the intention to get her back over fences (with someone else on her) by this fall so I could hop back on as soon as I’m ready this winter.  Obviously we then battled over a month of super ouch footsore issues.  So that was fun.  We are still looking into ways to rally and find a new path for O so that we can be successful together.

But the good side of things?  I feel awesome!  Riding feels great still, and I’m going to ride as much as I can until it’s just not possible anymore.  I do huff and puff a lot more, which isn’t the most flattering, but overall it still feels amazing to be on a horse.  Really it’s one of the places I can still feel like me, and like normal which is completely necessary.  It was a tiny bit sad this week when I couldn’t fit into my Tailoreds anymore….so I may have to get creative on wardrobe choices.  We shall see!  

Thanks again for all the support!  Your well wishes meant so much.

  1. Happy for you guys. I hope that I can continue to ride whenever we get to the making a family stage (years from now haha).

    I used to ride in these Kerrits tights when I was younger and I swear some of the pants that I wore when I was 8 were stretchy enough to fit me into high school so that might be a good option?

  2. That is a good bright side about the timing! Looking forward to continuing to follow along with your journey!

  3. ohhh congrats!!! I’ve known some people who rode until like a month before haha. this lady at my old barn told me she only rode in her first three months the first time she was pregnant, but then rode almost all the way up to her due date the second time she was pregnant and said it was totally fine, she just took it more easy as her pregnancy progressed. wish you the best with both babies!! 😉
