Times?

Hey.
Well as some of you know I am training Pumpkin and working my horse Chinga, also doing all the oher stuff that needs to be done with Chinga eg: grooming,feeding and just spending time with him. My only responsibility with Pumpkin is to work him. I do not need to groom or saddle Pumpkin as this will be already done for me by his owner. So really all I'm doing with Pumpkin is working him.
I have come up with a time table, Chinga needs to be ridden on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday other wise he builds up too much energy. With the longer rides for Chinga we walk around most the time. So I am not over working him, theese time ammounts are just average it depends on several things. What do you think of them?
What do you do with your horses if you have two, what are your times like? I am busy on Monday and Tuesday so I can not ride.

Wednesday:

Chinga:
10 minute groom
30 minute ride
Quick Brush

Pumpkin:
10 minute lunge
15 minute ride

Chinga:
20 minute groom
Total: 85 Minutes.

Thursday:

Chinga:
10 minute groom
15 minute ride
Quick brush

Pumpkin:
5 minute lunge
10 minute ride

Chinga:
20 minute brush
Total: 60 Minutes

Friday:

Chinga:
10 minute brush
40 minute ride
Quick brush

Pumpkin:
5 minute lunge
20 minute ride

Chinga:
20 minute brush
Total: 95 minutes

Saturday:

Chinga:
10 minute brush
45 minute ride
Quick brush

Pumpkin:

5 minute lunge
30 minute ride

Chinga:
20 minute brush
Total: 110 minutes

Sunday:

Chinga:
10 minute brush
60 hour ride
Quick brush

Pumpkin:
5 minute lunge
35 minute ride

Chinga:
20 minute brush
Total: 130 minutes

Just too organized you are!!

Wish I could stick to a timetable like that.

Mine consists mostly of;

Monday:

Mister: Brush 5 minutes
Lunge 10 minutes
Ride 10 minutes
Feel guilty because I don't do it 5 hours

Tuesday:
Mister: Brush 5 minutes
Lunge 10 minutes
Ride 10 minutes
Feel guilty because I don't do it 5 hours

Wednesday - Sunday:

Mister: Brush 5 minutes
Lunge 10 minutes
Ride 10 minutes
Feel guilty because I don't do it 5 hours

Ziggy: Must ride Zigs at some point

Now I think I'm too scared to ride Mister

I'm not that organized. I used to only work with one horse, then it was two..now it is three. Only one is actually saddled and ridden though. So I started out lunging Smooch but not for any particular amount of time. Just as long as it takes for him to settle down and 'listen' on the lunge line. Then I took out Bella, she is WORK on the lunge line because she has never been worked with before. Then I take out disney. I have lunged her for the past couple weeks and then last week hopped on her back after lunging her for a little while and just rode her around the pasture for about 10 minutes or so.

60 minutes is not a long ride. Three or four hours is a decent ride and a whole day is a long ride. I just spent a whole weekend on my horse, only stopping for smoko and lunch. It doesn't kill them :] Wet saddle blankets make good horses.

Having time restrictions for your rides is not the best idea... if you run into a problem, and you're limited to 15 minutes, how do you resolve it?

I ride as long as I need to get the result I am looking for.

They are around times, Chinga is not used to long ammounts of work and Pumpkin has been sitting in a paddock for ten years and needs small amounts of work.

If I run into a problem, I will attempt to fix it no matter how long it takes. I will work it out soon as it is my first time working two horses at once

It's always nice to have an idea of a schedule in your head, but very very important to play it by ear when it comes to working with horses. I usually figure i'll work with a horse for about 30 min to an hour depending on the horse but I do what it takes to get the job done, whether it's working with a difficult horse for a really long time or giving a good horse a bit of a break and ending early.

Thanks upnover. It was just an idea of a schedule but I know the times will change heaps. From how the horse goes and what not.
