I ride for about 30-45 min at a time unless I take Brodie roping, then it's like 3 hours

Cougar gets out for an hour 4-5 days a week. Greylite gets out for half an hour to an hour 2-4 days a week. It feels like nothing. I used to ride 5 horses a day six days a week.

During the summer, everyday of the week. During the school year, on the weekends and during vacations or other days off. When we finally move closer to the barn next year, i'll be there everyday again. We want a house with some land and there isn't anything like that around here.

It depends what you want to do. If you expect to be able to go on an all day trail ride or lope across the fields for an hour or compete, then, no, it's not enough. But if this is all you do, then, yes it's enough. Watch your horses diet and give them as much free turnout as possible and you should be OK. I work full-time, have a full family, do house renos, school meetings and who knows what else, so I don't have enough time to ride either. My girls get out 1 - 3 x a week for a couple of hours. I try hard to get out on the weekend both days, but it doesn't always work. I never ask much of them though. 90% of our riding is at a walk, 8% at a trot and 2% canter. I've been doing this for years and never had a problem with them.

I ride 4-5 days a week and she has two days off. She has all day turn out from 8am-5pm and during that time I try to ride for an hour in the morning and an hour after dinner normally 6:30-7:30. I'm not going to be showing her in anything more than some fun shows, nothing too serious and when my funds come back up I'll be hauling her for trail riding a bit before the rain and snow hits.

During the summer, I ride just about everyday, during school and the winter, probably about 2-3 times depending on the weather.

When Oscar Was At His Peek And Was Totally Fit And A Pure Muscle Machiene I Could Ride From 1 hour to 2 hours Depending On How He Was Still Going Just To Keep Him Fit. Then He Got Serios Case Of Colic And I When I Eventually Started Riding Him It Was For Half an Hour and I've Just Gradually Brought It Up 2 An Hour But Now Im Injured So can't Ride For A While:(

During The Summer I Used To Go Down Every Day But Id Always Give Him At Least 1 Day Of A Week And Jump Twice A Week:) Then Id Either Do Hill Work Or In The Arena Or Just A Quiet Hack As Theres No Fields Locally I Can Ride In:(
During School I Ride Weekends Tues Wed And Maybe Show On Fri Evening:) And Sometimes Show On Sun If Not Fri
