In essence; if you own a horse, and even if you lease, what's your weekly schedule like? Do you go in every morning and muck and feed, or does someone else do that for you? How often do you ride, for how long? Do you fit lessons and training in there too? How do you work around your work / family / general life schedules?
When I was half-leasing mine looked something like this. I was very lucky that my job at the time was willing to work around the 'horse-schedule,' switching my hours to mornings so I could spend afternoons with the OTTB, and I leased in the summers when I didn't have to worry about school.
