    I ride Bourbon every day, but it's mostly just putzing around bareback at the moment because I don't have a saddle that fits him.

    It depends on the horse for me. Competition horses in full work to prep for up coming comps will be worked 5-6 days a week. For around 45mins to 1hr sessions, I don't like to go much over the hour, particularly if the horse has had to work hard that session. I feel that they should get at least one day off a week, even if their work level is not overly high, as I hate to work 7 days a week so don't expect them to do it either!

    The greener horses I will work 2 days on, 2 days off

    I try and ride as much as possible but cautious as my horse seems to be clumsy and I don't want her slipping on wet ground. Our area is flooded near the barn area currently. I will wait till it dries to ride. Hopefully by xmas it will be as I plan on riding.

    Oh I'm jealous of everyone who rides/see's their horses everyday! At the moment I'm only getting out to ride 2-3 times a week (if I'm lucky)

    If I had an indoor I would be able to ride more often. It is just too cold for me. Week before last it was in the negatives all week (like -10F average) then with the windchill, just not possible :(

    On a good week I ride 3-4 times a week, if both my horse and I are healthy on a bad week it can be as little as 2-3 times a week.
    I realize I need to do more, but with 4 foster kids my plans often have to change and my needs come last. I am lucky though and he thinks he is mule, and is lazy as all bones, he doesn't care or regress when I don't ride him as often as I should.

    I see him every day though, even though he is boarded.

    Having 3 horses its hard to give them all the attention I want too. I really try hard to exersice all my horses at least 4 times a week minimum, but sometimes the clock just does not agree with me:)

    I ride my horse 4-5 times a week, about 30 min at a time, he's 4, right now there is a wet snow on the ground, so it gets stuck in his feet and causes him to walk funny. I don't want to mess up his ankles. Once the weather gets better he will be worked 5-6 times a week.
