Day in the life of a horse owner?
Right now I'm learning to ride hunt seat and taking lessons every week, and I think I'd like to have my own horse. I plan to lease first so I can try out different breeds and temperaments, so this isn't going to happen any time in the very near future, but I'm already starting to think seriously about this.
I'd be boarding this Hypothetical Horse, with full board because my work schedule can get a little wonky and I want to make sure that it's getting fed and mucked out on a predictable schedule. I'd also want to, I think, continue taking regular lessons.
All of the time I've had with horses has been pretty structured - I show up, I collect my mount, I groom and tack, I ride a lesson and cool down, I untack and groom, and put him back in his paddock or stall. I'm sure there is more to it than just showing up to do this every day or two when you own a horse, but I'm not sure what people usually do...
I know a lot of "day of horse" involves feeding, watering, mucking, turning out, bring in, etc. that I won't have to mess with if I get on full board. So, for those who board (or even those who don't) - what does the typical day with your horse look like?
