How often do you ride your horse?

How many times a week do you ride your horse? For how long?

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

I try to ride about three times a week, usually for about an hour each ride but sometimes more or less depending on what we are doing.

Help me horse forum! You're my only hope!

3-4x a week at 1 hour+ (he gets turned out the other days)

Gordon Wright once told a student to take up swimming because he would never be a good rider, that rider was George Morris.

5-6 times a week for 45 to 80 minutes. Keep in mind the 10-15 minute warm up and cool down in walk on either end :P

During the summer: 3-5 times a week for 2-6 hours generally around 4 though. And even though it is long a long time it is not very stressful on her young mind or body :) The trails are fairly flat and don't require much thought...
During the winter: 1-2 times a week for up to an hour...

What type of different things do you do in all that time?

I dont haha. My mare is lame and the baby is too young.

I ride my friends horse when I can. I will ride a horse who needs it more often, if the horse does great with a few rides a week or month, I dont push it. I just kind of ease them into conditioning if I show or want to take consistent lessons.
