Hey guys! I am trying to put together a "presentation" for my dad to show him the costs of owning a horse and such(part of my begging scheme) And I was going to show him a schedule I would follow every day for feedong,riding,cleaning ect. So if people could post their daily schedlues that would help! If you can, make it around schhool mornings(I wake up at 5:30 and leave for school at 6:55) Thanks!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

Well this schedule is for 3 horses:

7:30 Wake up
8:15-9:00 Feed/hay/water, muck stalls, turnout
9:30 Leave for class
10:00-2:45 Class
(About) 3:30 Ride <and only when weather permits
5:30 Feed/hay/water, muck paddock

This is an example of one day (wednesdays). I also have night classes on mondays, and I finish at 1 on fridays... kind of have to tailor your schedule to fit what you have to do. My horses are extremely flexible!

While I'm not in school, I do have a job. I think it should be about the same. I'll do a schedule of a day where I work at 6am.

4:45 AM- Alarm goes off. Hit snooze button.
5:15 AM- Alarm goes off again. I really get up this time.
5:30 AM- drive to work.
6:00 AM- 12 PM- Arrive at work. Six hours of working outside, or working inside with harsh chemicals. Lately its been really cold, but most of the time in Florida its really hot and I'm outside with 10-15 dogs.
12:30 PM- Arrive home. Eat lunch, watch whatever has recorded on our DVR.
1/1:30 PM-3:00 PM- Take a nap.
3:30/3:45 PM- Wake up, go out to the barn
4:00 PM- Arrive at barn. Usually there is a lesson going on. I collect the stuff I need, and either groom Ice or we work in the round pen.
5:45 PM- Arrive home. Eat dinner, etc.
6:30 PM- 11:00 PM- free time. Usually I'm on the internet
11:00/12:00 PM- go to bed. Might be later if I don't have work the next day.

This is pretty much in the winter...schedule varies in the summer

7-7:30 a.m. Wake up
8-10 a.m. Work
10:00-10:30 eat, get dressed head outside
10:30-12p Let horses out of the stalls if a nice day, otherwise feed, water, and clean stalls. If horses are out, clean stalls. If doing a full cleaning, this could take upwards to an extra hr or two. Feed cattle.
12-4p.m. Do various farm chores or errands.
4:30-6:30p bring horses in if the weather is bad. Feed, water and hay. Feed and water cattle
6:30-7:30 make/have dinner
7:30-9 relax, do laundry or whatever other chores still need doing.
9-12midnight go back to work.
12-12:30 try to relax and get ready for bed

"Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

Peoples schedules vary a lot more than I thought they would

I don't stall so mine's a lot easier.

6:00 wake up, get ready, and go home
7:00 am feed horses, spread hay, and check water tank
7:20 am eat breakfast/go to work
5:15 pm feed horses, spread hay, check tank
5:35 pm eat dinner, chores, etc

Depending on the weather and light situation I will groom/ride. Really the only major "schedule" I have is that I try to feed around 7-8 am and about 5-6 pm. Sometimes a little earlier or later but not that often (less than 1x per month). On the weekends I usually spend an hour or so cleaning the barn and their tie stalls (they aren't tied in them, that's just where they eat). During the summer it's about the same schedule just way more riding.

Well, when I leased my neighbor's horse and did all the chores myself this is what my schedule was like.

5:00AM - wake up
5:15-6AM - feed horses, turn them out, pick stalls
7-2PM - school
3-5PM - get home, go ride/take care of the horses
5-6PM - bring horses in, feed horses, pick stalls again if necessary
6-11PM - homework
11-12AM - try to get ready for bed

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it
