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.

Come for a visit to the states, you can be my company on crummy stuck in the indoor days!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

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.

Nice! My Hondo is 19 this year.

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!
