I ride 5-6 days a week. Normally for about 30mins-2hrs depending on what we are doing. If its a trail ride, we go longer, and if its ring work we go no longer than 45mins a ride. :)

I get out to ride twice a week if I'm lucky. I live with my mum and she words full time so that's all we can manage. I go out and feed him during the week if I can though.

Hmm. It depends on my horse, and the weather. I don't ride in the rain anymore, bad experience.
But if he's all happy, I'll ride him probably 9 times a week? A few mornings, then every afternoon. And depends on what he's like. Sometimes he gets moody, so I'll just take him for a short ride, or no ride at all. But when he wants to go for a ride, we sometimes ride up to 5 hours. Night rides are awesome.

My riding depends largely on the weather and my work schedule. I work full time shift work, so I can ride most days either before or after work depending on the shift, unfortunately it is winter at the moment and quite a wet one (we've been in drought for 10 years and finally have a wet year) so only manage between 1 and 3 times a week as I don't ride when it is wet or windy (no indoor arena). In spring/summer/autumn I try to ride 5 times a week in the early morning or late evening when it isn't too hot (it can get up to 45 C here).

I ride about 5 times a week on average. Sometimes more sometimes less. Right now it's been less becuase I hurt my leg, but I just got done riding and my hip is feeling great at the walk and canter and kinda hurts at the trot. I do sometimes go for night rides when we have a full moon and a clear sky it's like daylight. It's awesome.

Not at all right now due to pregnancy but when I am not pregnant Cougar is ridden 4-6 days a week. I would take him out for a trail ride twice a week for 1-2 hours then do the rest in the ring for nearly an hour. The pony would do something similar 3 days a week.

That's what I do too! With full moons, it's amazing. Out in the open, bush, with no street lights. You can -read- in the light.
Though on the nights when there's only a tiny bitta moon, or it's cloudy, I take one of those lights that you put on caps, but I thread it though a D ring on the saddle, and just turn it on if I need to.
