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
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
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:
BUTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!! I do plan on ridin the rest of my life, so i just have a small amount of hours FOR NOW
so with mine and yours we are up to
Brandon don't feel bad at least you are riding now!
I've probably been riding for about 15 years!
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.
you forgot to put a running tally silly :)
hmmm, for me well I used to have lessons all the time and then i took a long break....... now I ride for hours!! hmmm, I would say like 160 hours or so give or take......
that makes 23,234 hours!!
