I have no horses of my own as of now, but try to ride as much as money allows. I take two lessons a week, one of which falls in the middle of the work week. I manage by sacrifices... which usually means that I have to skip dinner and won't get back home till 9pm on that day, haha! If I had my own horse I'd simply be doing that more often. But I love riding so much it's a sacrifice I'm more than happy to make.
My weekends are usually free to do my other lesson and ride my friend's horses.
I wouldn't consider riding a priority exactly. However it is of importance to me after my health, my family, and my finances/work. If those other things are intact, riding is no issue.
