How often do you ride?
I try to ride every day, but with finances being tight and me having my show horses boarded where there is an indoor arena for the winter, I am riding a little less than I normally would. Usually four days a week, but on my mare right now that's enough for her. For how long?
An hour, usually, plus about ten minutes cool out time. What dicipline do you do?
Reining, ranch classes, barrels and gaming events as well.
After this year I will only be doing barrels. What do you do when you ride?
Always warm up with long trots and lots of counter arc circles, pressing buttons like haunch and forehand turns/sidepassing, counter canter, rollbacks, basically just trying to find some holes to work on. Often now with my mare I'm doing a lot of running hard into the arena and then letting her just chill and work so she learns the arena is not always a bad place when she is asked to run in. I am doing my best to prevent her gate problems. My colt is doing a LOT of drills right now, particularly spirals and rollbacks.
