How often do you groom/bond with your horse?

Hey everyone! Just wondering how often you go up to the see your horse. How often you groom. I board at a full-care facility over half an hour away from my house and with school, its sometimes hard to get up after a long day. I try to go up 4 days a week, but sometimes I go up 3 and skip 2 days in between instead of missing one day. Just wondering your opinions and how you feel. Thanks.

I see my horses 2-3 times a week. Sometimes I groom, sometimes I don't. I've found that as long as they're fed and taken care of they don't care whether they get groomed or not lol.

Do you think my horse will be okay if I regularly handle her every other day and once a week every other 2 days? That's what I've been doing lately. Because I love bonding with her and spending time with her and I don't want that to change. She is also pasture 24/7. It's just if I'm at school from 7:45-5, and then I have work to do, and the barn is 40 minutes away, it's a little difficult to balance everything some days... I definitely get up at least 3 days a week and that is a THOROUGH groom... all parts of her body, legs, feet, all!

I go out everyday after class. 18 hours + working 20+ hours a week doesnt leave a lot of time for riding, but Drifter gets fed every evening and I usually love on him for at least 20 minutes after.

The barn where I board is about a 12 minute drive from campus, and a 15-20 minute drive from my house.

I groom her and handwalk her, sometimes I'll try to get her to follow me and take pictures with her lol. But I'm really thorough about grooming her. She also gets plenty of kisses, love, hugs, and treats.

Every day. I work and am in university full time, which doesn't leave a whole lot of time. However, to preserve my sanity, I think it's probably the best bet!

You certainly don't HAVE to see your horse everyday (if you aren't it's primary care giver of course) and not everyone is able to do so, but the more the better I s'pose.
