Occasionally, especially on days like today when it's cooler and there is a 30 mph wind. But, I have some things to do this morning so I will see what the wind/temp is like this afternoon and will likely ride anyway.

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:

Between 18-30 hours a week normally. Depends on the weather, if it's too hot, we don't ride in the mornings. But in Winter I ride a ton more, because I can stay out later during the middle of the day.

Around 4 hours a day, but longer on the weekends. He lives quite some distance down the road from me, and it takes a while riding my bike down there. Hopefully, he'll be my next-door neighbor soon. ;)

About 5... I try to work and hour a day with her doing something and what we do depends on the unpredictable spring weather in Michigan. If she seems moody we lunge and do ground work. I'm hoping to do halter shows this summer so we've been practicing that. But she only will do a half hour of walk, trot, and standing square before I can see the snotty come out. :)> I hope to do some trail riding soon when old man winter releases his grip. That's her favorite thing. She'll go all day!!!

I ride very little. We live far away from the barn and we have not time to go except for the weekend. I ride for an hour a week usually :(

They say home is where the heart is. That must mean my home is ontop of an Angel getting ready to fly.

Due to the rainy weather here, I only ride 2-3 hours a week. I can only ride when my arena is dry enough. I will be riding 10+ hours a week in the summer though.
