    Great idea, Jazzy!!!

    Let's see...
    A) 2 hours/week for about 6 years = 624 + shows = around 750 hours for the first 6 years of my riding career..
    B) 10 hours/week for 8 years = 4160 + shows = roughly 4500 hours
    C) this summer was riding for 8 hours per day at least for 5 days per week for 4 months, plus training for 2 months on either side = approx 750 hours

    Umm, so a very rough estimate: 6000 hours... that doesn't seem like much, cosidering I've been riding for 15+ years... I'll have to go over my numbers again when I'm more awake...

    29,234 hours

    Ok so when I was around 10 or 11 I rode for about 156 hours all up. Between 11 and 14 I rode for about 4 hours per week so that's 832 and between 14 and 16 I rode/ride for about 7 hours per week so that's 728. All up 1716 hours! I wasn't expecting that!

    30950 hours so far!!

    I hope I added up right?! Maths was/probably will never be my best subject. Actually its my worst.lol

    Im going to say 750 hours I only counted half a year (winters not much riding) 5 hours a week for 25 weeks. And only gave myself 6 years so its a pretty low estimate. I'm not counting teenage riding time since I don't remember.

    Total= 31700

    4,380 days of riding since I first started to ride...so 8,760 hours??

    For some reason it sounds very low, but I know I did the math right.

    = 40,460

    ^^ that's something I didn't do M2G. I thought that number was rather low and when I looked over it again today, I messed up royally

    So I recalculated and will add the difference from what I previous had to what I am around.

    I'm around 768 hours I think. That's a lot better than the 189.

    So now the total is at 41,039

    I rode for two hours a week from age 11-14 so that's 336 hours and then I quit riding and then in November I rode for about 12 hours a week for four weeks so that's 384 hours and now I ride about 2-4 hours a day so I'll say about 3 hours a day four 4 days a week and I've been doing that for three months so that's another 144 so I have a total of 528.

    TOTAL = 41567
