Anywhere from five minutes to an hour or more. It really depends on how dirty he is, what I want to do and how much time I have. No matter how short of time I have though, I never skip grooming.

before and after rides??

Depends on how dirty she is. The average, on a good day, will be 15 minutes. Tonight she looked like a hot mess, covered in mud. I didn't even bother grooming her...seems like a task for another day when I have ALOT of time. LOL

Before rides it usually takes me about 7-10 minutes. And after rides about 5. Usually just do a dandy brush, hooves and brush out the mane after I ride. Unless he somehow got super dirty...

well it takes about 15 minutes to tack up and 15 to untack. Of the tacking and untacking I usually spend about 7 of it grooming. When he is a dirty mess and has decided to take a trip to the spa and have a mud bath it takes a really long time to get him clean as he is a gray.

I normally give a good 7 to 10 minutes grooming, before riding but, that's when i'm in a rush and that'll only be with the soft brush (after&before ride)
On a good day (since, he's shedding right now) i'll take the shedding blade to him for a good 7 to 10 minutes and get in every nook and cranny and than take the soft brush to him and also pick out his hooves.

I don't spend a lot of time grooming since I don't mind if they are still a bit dirty. I focus on the saddle/girth area and the bridle area on their face. If they just need a quick brushing, 2 minutes max, if they are muddy or shedding, it will be closer to 5-10. There are many times when I don't groom at all after a ride. In the winter, I'll use a metal curry after they have dried to fluff their hair back up and sometimes in summer, I will give them a rinse if they got especially sweaty, but normally I just turn them back out. They groom themselves by rolling.

It takes me 5 min haha. I brush before I ride and then put the horse back out. I will spend longer brushing if I feel like it but If I don't then I only brush alittle bit.

It really depends. In winter, there's no mud to roll in, so the most grooming I do before a ride is to pick out their feet and brush along the saddle and girth area. Right now, with all the mud, to completely de-mud, de-fur, and shine them up takes a few hours. In summer, it's mostly dirt that comes off really easily. Basically, between 5 minutes and a few hours.
