    30 minutes a week would have been 30 minutes more than I got for every week since December, except for a 10 day stretch where I got out 3 times. <sigh> we take what we can get sometimes.

    On a good note, I final got out today! Yay!

    I would not plan on going out that often while you're in school. I hate to say this but the barn sucks up important study time.

    You should definitely allow yourself 30 minutes 1 day.. and maybe build up but not THAT much... I am balancing a fulltime job, horse time, and college online. I have been dedicating Saturdays to my 30 minutes of riding (now it's 50 at this new barn) and have just ended my term so I am able to spend a few hours out there once a week with my new project. But yeah between travel time, groom time, and ride time.. the minimum I can be out there is 3 hours..

    When it comes down to it; I'll just have to see how I can fit it into my schedule. If I am able to go twice a week let's say, and do well in uni; then it all works out. If not; if not. The problem is that I'm planning way far ahead. I'm not even in college yet. I'll see when I'm done with 1st semester. My previous post were just written in some agitation. Much more relaxed this week; enough to think straight.

    Well, I was originally molecular biology pre-vet (but ended up doing neuroscience with a math minor and am now doing my PhD instead of vet school!), and I rode twice a week on my college IHSA team (once a week if it was busy). My friend who was pre-law/English rode much more often than I did. ;) It's totally do-able! Especially if you live on campus.

    Are you going to college in upstate NY? (Saw your signature!)

    Sorry for the late reply; yes- I am going upstate! I am living on campus too (which has many stables around that I can get to.) I guess I should also consider other things- I may or may not change my major. Interest can change easily. I'm quite excited
