It's only natural,Marie Theresa might have though Marie Antoinette was still delicate and fragile, therefore advising Marie Antoinette. And considering the fact she's her mother and women died in childbirth I understand. :)

It is still considered dangerous for pregnant women to rise horses..

Even now it's still dangerous to ride horses? I did not know that. :|

Oh yeah. If a woman, and this sounds terrible, falls from a horse and onto her stomach, it might end in miscarriage.

That could certainly be a scenario that could cause miscarriage even the thought of it makes me shudder. Although I think attempting to go on a horse at say nine months would be difficult actually in the later trimesters would be also rather peculiar. :|

I can imagine getting on a horse at nine months would be difficult and amusing to watch, Hellou! :lol:

I would find it amusing if a woman nine months pregnant waddled towards the horse; but I would get nervous if she even tried to get on the horse!

I am not sure. I know that she loved cards and I think Roulette, which is my favorite casino game, even though I really have no gambling spirit.

She went with the Comte d'Artois who would compete against Philippe-Egalite's horses.

There is an amusing story about how Mercy was dismayed that at the races, Antoinette mingled with the commoners and those ill-dressed. Unfortunately I cannot remember where I read this so I cannot reproduce it here. :angry3:

No, I do no think this is so. I read it recently, I am sure it was in one of Mercy's letters to Maria Teresa.

Well, maybe it does. I just looked up horses and racing in the index and could not find a reference. Perhaps you could? :angel1:
