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 ....

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?
