My weeks are pretty busy and I try to get to the barn to ride at least 6 days a week. I work full time and have an hour commute (into and out of DC). I get home, take care of my dogs, head to the barn for 4. Ride from 4:30-5:30 (or 6 depending on the horse's attitude and how well he is working), then clean him up and head home. Now, understand that by clean up I mean cool off, some grass grazing and just bond time :). I leave for work at 4 am each morning so I am not up long once I get home. Depending on what chores are really calling, I willeither take Wednesday off or one day over the weekend. Of course, with show season upon us, weekends can get pretty full.
