Right now one or two times a week if I am lucky, this is a really busy time of year at work and working in this heat is leaving me exhausted. I am currently sucking up some AC and don't feel like leaving my chair. But shortly I will go groom and possibly go for a ride if I feel up to it.

In another month or so I should be able to get back to riding daily.

During the summer months - mid-May through mid-Aug, I ride 5-7 times per week. I typically get in about 2 hours. During the school year (I'm a teacher), I'm lucky to get 1-2 rides in per week...and the colder it gets, the less I ride. Yes, I confess, I'm a fair-weather rider...I HATE the cold

I ride about 5 days a week.

I do alot of hacking primarily. We have about 80 acres of pasture to ride in, full of hills and great terrain to condition on.

I have a lesson once a week, where we do dressage and jumping and I spend about 1 day out of that week doing just dressage.

In the summer I ride 6 days a week for 45 mins to an hour of hard, solid work. But when school starts I get to ride 3-5 days a week. Sometimes only twice a week. In the winter sometimes I can go a week without riding! Stupid Michigan...

During the summer I ride about 5-7 days a week and am out there all day (10+ hrs sometimes usually at least 7 or 8) :). During the school year, I ride 4-5 times a week but I'm only able to be there about 2 hours. Which isn't as good but at least I still get to see my pony :) that's the important part.

I always ride six times a week. He gets a day off but otherwise all my time and money goes into the horse so the horse gets to be my off-work entertainment of choice I can't afford anything else to do anyway after him

I used to go on trail rides with a friend at our old barn which would be 2 or 2 1/2 hours but we're still working on our courage to go out on the new (less wide and open) trails alone at the new barn.

Our rides are usually about an hour every day in the arena. He gets a good sweat after and our trainer thinks it's just about right for now.

I'm really lucky that I can go out there every day, we both need the consistency to back up our lessons!

In the summer, I try to get out 4 or 5 times a week. My parents aren't keen on getting me out there...
I'm sort of at their mercy. In the winter, it's entirely dependent on the weather. Usually it's more like 3 times a week in winter. And then it's even worse trying to get them out to be there. :P

I ride 1-2 times a week, I will ride more soon though. I am slowly getting Sonya back into shape after she had time off while she was with her baby. I also ride english, and Sonya is trained english, but I only have a western saddle at the moment, so I can't ride the way I want to... Getting one as soon as I have the money tho!

I try to ride 5-6 times a week even if its just for a few minutes. One of my favorite things to do is hop on Berdi bareback and go for a nice trail ride through the trees or trot her bareback. She loves it too! I work 3-4 days a week though so sometimes our rides are not as long as I would like!

I ride 5-6 times a week. 40mins-1hr long each. Depending on how hard we are working though depends on how long I ride him for.
