3:50AM get up - clean stalls and feed/water two horses, feed three barn cats, walk dogs, and get ready for work.
5:00PM get home repeat all above except the getting up part.
9:00PM night check, pick stall and give over night hay.

This time of year it is too dark to ride. In the summer I can squeeze riding in after I get home from work.

Horses have 24/7 access to pasture and stalls.

Wow, you wake up early

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

My horse is at my house and she isn't really stalled however she is in a corral with shelter at night. Here is my Schedule:
5:45 am Run outside and either feed hay(during winter) or let her into the pasture(summer)
6am-4pm I am getting ready for school and am at school.
4-5:30 pm Brush her, lounge, or ride
5:30-6pm I feed her change water and clean her corral
6-9 do homework
10 Sleep!
Sometimes if I don't have much Homework I will go for a longer trail ride or something

I'm not in school, but my daughter is so here goes.....

6am - wake up and let 3 dogs out, feed 2 cats, let 3 dogs back in and feed them.
7am - wake up grumpy 9 year old and start nagging her to eat breakfast
7:45a drive grumpy 9 yr old to school and head to the barn
8am - Fill 2 feed buckets with grain and a bit of water in the long barn, coax my two horses into their stalls, go to the other barn and fill 3 feed buckets with grain, a bit of water and a splash of oil, put two more horses in their stalls and one horse in the ring. Fill the remaining 2 feed buckets and feed the last two horses in the pasture. If the round bales are gone then I get a bale of hay and divide it generously into 7 piles out in the pasture somewhere (the driest place I can find). De-ice the water troughs and refill, let my two horses out of their stalls, let the other two horses out of their stalls (barns aren't close together), let one horse out of the ring. Clean any mess my two horses left in their stalls.

If I have time I brush out my horses (the mud is awful), clean up their hooves, restock any feed or hay that needs to be moved

10am - go home and take a nap

Not keeping your horse in a stable is much less work, not to mention alot cheaper! I keep my horse in a group paddock which costs $32 a week. The place where she lives is also a riding school (as well as an agistment place) so I have access to all the facilities (indoor/outdoor arena, trails etc.)

I only have to go out once a day, usually in the afternoon. I catch her, brush, saddle up, ride for an hour or so, untack, brush and put her back in the paddock with a carrot or two before driving home.

My horse doesn't need feeding as she is a quarter horse and keeps her condition well. In the summer when the grass is good she just gets a carrot after a ride, or a hard feed once a week if shes working hard. In the winter she gets a biscuit of hay a day. A bale of hay costs around $20.

I highly recommend you keep your horse a 24/h paddock if possible, no mucking out or sweeping breezeways! Its cheaper and easier, especially when you have studies and can't always get out twice a day.

I clean out my paddocks when I clean out my stalls. I can not imagine how gross they would get if they were not ever cleaned. I am guessing the paddocks where you keep your horse are cleaned also.
