I ride an hour give or take 15 minutes on either end per ride. But spend a good chunk of time (45min) getting him groomed and tacked up before and after too, then I clean paddocks and set feed.
I'm also starting to teach lessons, a friend isn't able to keep up with her lessons with her trainer so I'm stepping in and coaching for an hour 2-3 times a week and getting some $ for that, not much.
I am hoping to be getting some house sitting gigs from local horse people if needed.
For work it's very demanding and draining so it really doesn't make me want to look for more real work at the time cause I would for sure burn myself out. I don't get up super early, 8 is about my wake up time, work in the afternoon so I ride and do chores in the morning. I live on a island and my 2nd job is a ferry ride away and two busses into downtown, I do that on a weeked evening ussally (since I have no social life lol)
So by the end of the day in usually pretty pooped but the days are getting longer and staying lighter out for longer and that sure will help!!!
I'm going to see about a fence washing gig down the road from me and see if that pays :)
