Well. In winter I jump once a week and summer usually twice a week officially.. However when I go on my trails there are logs that I jump and jumps that I have set up so sometimes I go over those, but I never jump Candy more than every other day (unless its some clinic, and the only reason I would be jumping her every other day in a week would be because of lessons with great instructors coming up for our PC or something along those lines). I dont really count the jumping on the trail, which is almost never more than once a week, because I only jump half a dozen jumps on a 2 hour trail ride.

Well, I have to jump a bit more often, with two horses of my own, and some more at the stable, so I try once a day, but sometimes I just can't due to the fact that a day has just 24h. In winter no problem, as I live in the south of Spain^^

once or twice a week in the summer, sometimes once every 2 weeks when I feel like he needs more flat training.
Last winter I think I only jumped 4 times total, because my indoor is very small and our flatwork was more important at the time since I was still just getting used to him.

Ah, and this even in winter? That's great that you find the time to do so. I have to admit that, yes, I try to get one of my horses out once per day, in order to move each of them sometimes during the week, but well, it's quite difficult^^

Well in the winter I work on dressage and my eq. for showing. I probably jump about once a week in the winter, not very high though, probably about 2'6 or under. :)

I jump 2x/week in the summer, and maybe once a week in the winter as the indoor fits maybe 3 canter strides

Ah ok, sure, well here in Andalusia, we don't need indoor, we hardly even have indoor fully closed stables. So I can go jumping and riding all year more or less at the same path

But it's quite interesting, I've never thought about the fact that if it's very cold or even snowy, you can't do as much as in summer...

When the ground permits (given its winter here and currently a slosh pit) I jump maybe 1-2 a month. Sometimes more. I'm not a jumper, I prefer flatwork, but my mare loves jumping so it's generally used as a reward or a bit of variety. I find if we are particularly struggling with something, I will add jumping into our next ride. It gives Honey a break from whatever is troubling her, and sometimes I can achieve what I'm asking after she's had some time to clear the "dressage fuzzies" away haha!

I ride 4-6 days a week, sometimes 2 or 3, and I jump about 3 days a week. I can not jump when I am alone at the barn, only with a person watching or with another person with you. In lessons, I jump 3ft+, so I jump that once a week, and a few other times a week I jump just x's and 2ft+ verticals

That led me straight to you...
