    Its really how much your body can handle. I would say three times a week would be great. Min would be one day.

    The more you ride, the better you'll get. I would say ride every time you get a chance for as long as you can.

    Also I watched/read books and movies. That said, "you should ride at least twice a horse for about an hour and half."
    That's what I do, unless I can ride more. I can send the whole day riding horses, since I have 3. I can switch so they won't get tired. XD

    Your lucky to have 3 riding horses I have a thoroughbred mare that I ride but my sister also rides her so I am trying to work with my dads clydesdale cross thoroughbred gelding who isnt cooperative but still is ok but at the moment I am doing ground work with him so I am not riding as much. THANX AGAIN

    I found a real exponential difference between riding twice a week and thrice a week. Three times a week is a LOT better than twice. I dunno why.

    As much as possible!!!! I ride almost every day since I'm competeing and training and I have lessons two times a week. And a word to the wise, sometimes you have to ride through the pain!

    Ride as much as possible while still keeping things like schoolwork and your horse's welfare in mind. Don't set out on a 3-hour hack on a poorly conditioned horse, even if you're up for it.

    My mare is lame now and my other 2 horses live in an outdoor facility and its -25 celsius so I haven't ridden in about a week but when I do ride usually its everyday. Boarded mare gets 6 rides a week and on sunday I ride my boys at home. In the summer it was 3 rides a day, 6-7 days a week.
