How many times you ride your horse week?
 
So since I have joined the forum last year I get on it like every day or just stop and don't get on it for months so im pretty sure this has been asked before. Just curious how many times you ride your horse a week? I try to ride my horse 4/7 times a week but only 30-60 minutes. He really needs to be rode that much because he just does better. It really works for him. So how many times a week you ride your horse?

Well, I try my best to ride at least 4 times a week, preferably 5 or 6. It depends whether I can get away from schoolwork (grade 11...ugh) and extra maths. :smile:

I ride about an hour 5 times a week. This seems to keep her happy and properly exercised. Makes for a nice evening relaxation for me too!

I totally understand with school. I start school back up in a week, also 11th grade and a new school that focas on careers. So when school starts back up I then will just see how it goes :)

I ride on average 6 days a week for 1-2hrs.

Poor you...school takes up a huge part of our days, including the work we have to do at home plus the studying, but I have promised myself I will push myself to keep up with riding as much as I can. :grin:

Also, excluding this years interschools competitions, I only have one more year to ride for school colours, so I'm training hard for next year with Night Heat (I am currently working again from the bottom upwards with her and by January next year I need to have her jumping at least 80cm :shock: )

It does take a lot of time and now my parents need me to get a job to help support my horse. I was going to get a job after school and then go to with my horse, but that is just not going to work with horse, school, homework, job.. So i talked to my parents and a weekend job might be the best then pick up extra hours during the summer.

That's really hectic... :sad: I hope things work out alright for you. :smile:

On average probably about 3-4 times a week and rides can last anywhere from about 30 minutes to 8 hours if we find some good trails.

I get to ride one or two times a week if I'm lucky. I have a full time job working 9 to 6 five days a week, a Sunday job, and I'm a full time college student.
