    Normally I ride 4 - 5 times a week for 45 mins to 1 1/2 hours.
    This summer has not been "normal". Both horses have been "pasture ponies" due to circumstances beyond my control.

    However, I am now able to ride, and will begin 3 times a week for 30 to 45 mins each time per horse.

    Am at the mercy of the weather (no indoor) and have decided I don't like wet saddles. But, I do have rain gear and synthetic saddles if needed, so if it's not a down pour, can still ride.

    You guys have been so inspiring to me to get back to my old schedule and push myself. I ride alone and sometimes it's easy to just give in to an excuse and not ride. Thanks for making me feel that even though I'm alone, I 'm really not.

    It varies, for a while there I didn't ride at all, for almost a year I didn't even get on a horse. Now my horse is back in work i've been building him up, I used to ride him 1 day a week for no more than an hour but have increased that to two and I try and work him (lunge or free jump) 4- 5 times a week for no more than 30 minutes.

    He has hip issues so long rides at anything other than a walk or light trot are pretty much out of the question right now, but back in the day we'd spend all day on the trail and i'm hoping once he gets stronger (and less pissy about being worked) we can do that again.

    I hear ya on that! Riding alone can be awesome sometimes, but most of the time I just want a buddy to chat with and race :]. Glad to know I'm not the only one that makes excuses to not ride sometimes.

    Now that classes have started up for me, I have a bf, I go to most of his home games & practices I ride twice a week, sometimes three times a week.
    Once Fri afternoon, Sat morning, & Sun morning.
    I only ride Khanner becuase I likes him, I work with Pepper for a hour on the weekends, & Fairy has become a pasture pet (I need to start working her again, BAD Red, BAD!)

    I wish I had more time but well... life sucks.
