Foal
My horse lives outside 24/7 at a full-care facility. I try to find the time to ride him 5 days a week, jumping once, mostly dressage the other days.
If the barn was a little closer I'd do some ground-work or longeing on day 6 or just go for a walk down the road, but this is usually not possible.

I have the same routine 7 days/week.

7:00 am - feed horses in stalls, take hay and water out to the paddocks while they are eating, turn out the horses, giving each horse a quick check over and brush off and blanketing as needed, clean stalls, put hay in stalls, clean out and refill water buckets and sweep and tidy up barn

Noontime - noontime check, feed, hay, check water

5:00 pm - bring horses in from turnout, quick check over and change blankets as needed, feed (in winter this happens earlier around 4:00, sometimes when it is nicer out, like right now in the springtime, it is later around 6:00)

9:00 pm - night check, feed, hay, water, quickly muck out stalls


If the weather is really bad I may keep them in and then if it is better by noontime they go out then, if not they just stay in for the day. Or, if the weather turns bad by noontime I will bring them in then. On these days the stalls are mucked out at each one of the times above.

I fit in riding/exercise times in between the times listed above, weather permitting. I spend time grooming every day even if I don't get the chance to ride if the weather is bad.

Also, it might look like they get a lot of feed, since I give them 4/day, but I only give them small amounts at a time of high fat/high fibre feed and a ration balancer.

Mine is so easy!


Monday: Off

Tuesday: Work at the stables.

Wednesday: Ride my horse! Usually a trot/canter trail for about an hour.

Thursday: Get her from the pasture and groom.

Friday: Might trail ride lightly, but usually off.

Saturday: Flat work. Possibly jumping if my trainer is available.

Sunday: Ground work.

Monday through to Saturday:
- start at 5am, work over thirty horses each morning
- finish anywhere between 9.30am to 12.30pm

Then if we got races depending on what time and where at, im literally gone all day.

And the only time I have off is Sunday unless we got races LOL

I only see mine about 2-3 times a week so when I am out there I brush them down, trim hooves, doctor any wounds if needed. Feed around 6pm. Chanti isn't rode or worked, but once a week I try to lunge Sundance and do light jumping and hill work with him. I play with the foal about 30 minutes. Monday-Friday I very seldom get to go see them. Our weekends are pretty busy but if we are in town we try to stop and check on them. During the rest of the week when we aren't there my brother feeds for me but nobody gets brushed or worked,etc. It sucks and I want so badly to get them closer but until we pay off our house and move to a small farm it'll have to stay like this :(

I've recently bought my mare so I haven't started riding yet.

So far though, I go out around 10am-ish, catch her, unrug her, groom her, maybe do a little ground work then feed her and put her back.

Then I go out at around 4pm-ish, catch her, do a little work maybe, feed her, groom her, rug her and put her back out.

Reading this thread has been interesting. I thought I had it tough because I work full time and my barn is an hour away. But someone on here said they commuted an hour and worked full time and yet they ride 6 days a week!! I have to find a barn that lets me ride early in the morning. Mine only allows rides after 8.
Also I wish I can help clean out stalls. I used to enjoy doing that at my old barn. But the current one has live in staff who keep the place spotless.
This thread sure gave me ideas.

During the school year
Saturday 10-2
Sunday 10-2

During the summer
M-F 11-4

The first hour is ground work with Sonny working on bending and moving from behind to build up those weak stifles. Then I ride for an hour working poles on the ground or cones or both then maybe a 45 minute trail ride as a cool down. I spend the rest of my time helping clean stalls for my B.O., sweep the floors, feed, water, and clear cobwebs.

I'm not entirely sure of what my schedule will be this summer, but I am at the barn at least 6 days a week, usually I got everyday. I ride 6 of the days and one day I just groom him and visit. I'm not sure if I'm going to work at the barn this summer, but if I do I always clean his stall then ride. It's only 20 minutes from my house but from my internship I think it's about an hour :/
