how many times...

How many times a week do y'all ride? I ride every single day (and every second) that I can! I do know a lot of people with horses that MIGHT get on their horses 10 times in a year.

I ride everyday, unless something else comes up - exams, rain, etc.

If I don't feel up to riding, I'll lunge my horse. Although, its not always hard workouts (people, please remember our horses need breaks too), sometimes I'll just take him for a nice walk around the paddock. Sometimes bareback, othertimes just led.

Im only at the barn 3-4 times a week, but I ride 3-4 horses(or more :P) on each day, so I guess alot.

I'd *LIKE* to average about 4 or 5 days a week, but it's closer to 2 per week... If I was idly rich and had the time off, I'd ride every day (I have more than one horse)....

It depends on the weather for me. I like to ride 3 times a week ( I have netball on Thursday's and Saturday's) and on the other days I will do a light lunge session. But that's if the weather is perfect most weeks I will average 2 rides and 2 lunge sessions.

I personally ride 3, maybe 4, times a week.
I have lesson kids (mostly walk with a smidge of trot/canter for one kid) on the other three days so Lacey is basically worked everyday.

Lacey certainly wouldn't put up with me riding her everyday (even though I'm skinny as standards go, I'm hitting the max of what her old bones want to carry) but she's completely happy with this schedule. If I could, I'd love to ride everyday but Lacey's needs come first.

I try to ride 4 to 5 times a week.
I have so much going on here lately its more like 3 time a week, if I get lucky.
It sucks going out to feed everyday and not having the time to go for a ride.

3 to 4 times a week on average, which works out to 4 to 6 hours on the saddle.

When I had my horse I was at the barn every other day and all weekend long...pretty good considering at the time I was working and my oldest daughter was about two at the time..but a lot of the time I took her with me and so glad I did because she absolutly loved it!!

I'm at the yard every day for feeding, mucking out and snuggled everyday, and some days when I fetch him in I bareback him up from the field, but proper riding, usually only once a week at the minute, because of the mixture of sunnys age, uni and weather. This summer it will probably be a little more with him getting older and me getting some time off uni.
