We can visit the stable much more often in Spring, so it'll probably be around 2+ hours of riding time when the weather gets warm and beautiful. I can't wait to get riding again after such a harsh winter.

In the wintertime I get about 8-10 hours a week of riding. In the summer I get about 6-8 hours a day every other week when we horsecamp. We try to ride 100 miles a week when we are out.

With my heart problems I don't get much riding time anymore. My daughter on the other hand spends about 12 hours a week in the saddle and about the same working the mini's ....

About 4-6 hrs a week. Too cold to do more

Right now? 0. It's finally warming up. Our arena is inside, but it's not heated. I'm not really up to riding in -20F air.

In the summer, probably.. 2-3 hours a day, maybe more. Depending on which class of campers I have. And depending if I go home on the weekends or stay at camp, that would add a few more hours. So...probably 15 hours, give or take.

I spend 4-5hrs a week on my gelding and then every few weeks, I have someone come out and spend another hour or so working on him. He's 4, so I limit it to 1hr sessions (once it warms up we'll add in longer trail rides) and he gets 2-3 days off per week.

Right know the weather is so bad and the ground is so slick..I am lucky to get on my horse for a half hour O.O

Once it dries up I usually ride an hour-two hours a day depending..when its summer I ride a lot.

Hmm, today I was on my first horse by 9am and I kept riding until about 5pm. By that point, the wind was getting detrimental to riding youngsters. Though I gave 3 young horses a pretty dang good workout and also took Dobe for a long jog with the dogs. It was about 82* here today.

Depends on each horse for me. My younger in-training horses get 1 day off a wk along with the horses I have in for others, but all get groundwork on their days off. My older dead broke horses get me once or twice a week to stay tuned up but get most of their riding time with lessons, they get 1 or 2 days off depending on schedule. I average about 8 hours a day in the saddle. Now that warm weather is coming it will increase since I can get out of the darn indoor! Yay spring!!!! :)

Smrobs i'm so envious . I only work part time as I have a little girl so the option is there for me to ride most days but child care issues force me not to. Is there ever a day goes by when you get up and think heck not today?
