hours in the saddle
 
i thought it might be fun to figure out how many hours have been spent in the saddle between us all. i know it will only be a very rough estimate but i still thought it might be fun. what ive done is taken the average amount of hours a week i would ride and multiplied that by the years ive been riding. keep a running tally as you go so at the end of your post put the total of your hours plus the total hours from the post above

here goes:

i ride on average about 15 hours a week but i had many years where i rode a whoooole lot more than that so i have averaged it out to 20 hours a week.

its been around 25 years that i have been riding and i had 3 years off in there somewhere. so i will make my years 22.

1 year = 1040 hours
22 years = 22880 hours (wow thats a lot of hours lol) i know its only a very rough guess but its probably ball park :D

TOTAL
22,880 hours

Well unfortanently for me i just started ridin last month and a few lessons i missed (1. was for ACT and 2. we got rained out).. So i only have a total of maybe 5 hours in the sattle... i know that sounds really low and i feel kinda embarrassed to put a number so small on here. Man i hate bein the new guy lol!! :roll:

when i first started out, i would have 1 hour lessons once a week. I started at age 8 and stopped taking lessons around age 17 i think. so that's 9 hours. But in the summer i was a counselor at a horse camp and we got to ride 2-3 times a week for around an hour. I did that from age 13-17. And the camp went from the first week in July to the end of august. So i'm up to 33. Before i was a counselor i was actually in the camp. We rode T-F for about 2 hours total. I was in the camp for about 3 weeks or so. 57 hours.

Now that i've owned Vega, i've ridden quite alot. I'm going to say in the spring/summer i would ride 5 times a week for 1 hour, sometimes more, but i'm going to stick with 1 hour. And since then, i've ridden maybe a dozen times after that.

So i got 189. I'm guessing that's not really accurate. But somewhere around there i guess.
