How much time does a mare need to be out of showing when doing an embryo transfer?

How much time does a mare need to be out of showing when doing an embryo transfer?
Hey Camden ! I think that there's no rule concerning the "recovery period" after pregnancy but if the mare is feeling ok, 2 or 3 months after having given birth you can probably start to ride again, taking it slowly (light flatwork to begin and of course start again showing when she'll be completely ready). Some would advise you to start again riding after the weaning. I think that the best is to ask to a vet to be sure that your mare is healthy and ready to be working again to avoid dangerous situations for her. Hope I'm helping ! :)
