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.
