How many hours do you ride your horse a week?

I'm in the saddle on my horse around 8-10 hours a week. How about y'all? I'm just curious.

Right now I ride only about 4-5 hours a week due to the icky weather here in WI. We still have snow.

When summer comes around I ride about 10-15 hours a week.

right now not many. IF we can get out on the trails usually2-4 hours. Once the nice weather comes I will be going out a lot more as I need to put some miles on Hunter

Depends on how busy my week is! Probably ranges from 3-6 hours a week on a non horse show week. If it's a horse show, its definetly waaaay longer.

My own personal horse, I'm lucky to spend an hour on him every couple of weeks, but I average about 6 or 7 hours in the saddle per day.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

no where near enough if all I have to say. :( I need to move closer to my horse because moving him closer to me is not an option. Ugh.

I ride one horse about 5-7 hours a week and another horse about 3 hours a week. So I have my butt in the saddle about 8-10 hours a week all together.

Not much honestly with the weather & snow & no inclosed area nearby. If it's a nice day i'll go out on the roads, but can't do much more than a walk/trot because of ice & the snow in the ditches is well above my girl's knees, same with the pasture.
It would be super great if Mother Nature would stop having hot flashes! Up to plus 9 one week and minus 36 the next!! Grr!
