    Don't feel bad. There's a lot of people that don't ride that much. Family time is important. If I didn't work in my barn and worked outside the farm, I wouldn't have time to ride like I do. BTW, I have a Hondo too! He's my old man, just celebrated his 30th birthday.

    I ride about 5 days a week (most days, it is multiple horses), but am at the barn nearly every day. Some days, I really am too tired to ride, and I've learned not to feel guilty. It happens. I work overnights (10pm-6am) and sometimes I'm just too exhausted.

    I try to ride or at least do groundwork 3 times a week. I have confidence issues, so I do groundwork if I don't ride. I'd like to go more often, but I have to make sure I'm spending enough time with the kiddo, too.

    I ride a couple times a year. I'm too lazy.

    I see my horses twice a day, every day. So that's pretty awesome.

    I ride everyday! I have 7 so I pick one at random and go. All of them have different uses and such so just depends how I feel that day. Do I want to ride gaited today? Oh wait maybe I will go rope some steers... All depends on how I feel and I have all them at my barn behind the house so no problems for me getting to them daily!
