Working Two Horses

Hey,

I'm just wondering how your timetable works if you have two horses, I understand that they can't be exact but can be around about. I own a TB gelding Chinga who gets worked 5 days a week other wise he has two much energy and I'm working with a pony Pumpkin who I try to work on Saturdays and Sunday's as I don't have enough time to work him other days. Neither of the two horses get worked on Mondays or Tuesdays as I am busy with other things. Also how long do you brush your horses before and after your rides. I understand that it will be differant for the ammount of dirt your horse has on it and the amount of time you have ridden. Also how long would you suggest for working a horse in training how long in the saddle and how long lunging?

I would recommend grooming for about 10 minutes-20 minutes max.
Just picking out hooves,giving a quick brush etc.
Lunging for about 5-10 minutes either direction.
And about and hour and a bit in the saddle.But it really just depends on how fit the horse is and how much time you have.
I am not sure how to work out the 2 horse timetable, as I only have 1.
Hope this helps.

I groom Rupert for a while... half an hour or more, but I have a lot of time and ride him for an hour and 10 minutes. =]

Heh, my horse gets spoiled as she's the only one I've got right now.

Grooming: 10-20 minutes, depending on what she needs
Lunging: Until she's done and focused on her job
Riding: She's not terribly broke, so we ride as long as she can before her mind goes out the window. Usually about 1/2 hour at this point.

I ride both the horse I'm leasing and my horse in the same day. But it depends if you have the time or not..
