I typically go riding between 5-7 times a week because sometimes I ride in the morning, and again in the afternoon, so I really only go out to the barn 5 days a week. I usually ride about 2 hours, 5 hours tops when we go on an "expedition" which is usually on Mondays we take a big ol' trek through the world.
So averaging all that stuff out, lets say I ride six days a week, at 2 hours a day. So I ride about 12 hours a week on my average week.
That would be great if I worked him hard when I rode him, which I have been a little more but I usually don't. I've been asking a lot more of him when we ride, before we used to do LOTS of walking, and minor trotting and and even less cantering. We used to walk for a good hour and 45 minutes, trot 15 minutes and MAYBE canter a minute, usually less. The trot and canter was usually done freely, meaning, i didn't ask him to extend or collect at it but lately I've been asking for a lot of collected trotting, and I've been starting to ask for collection on the canter, but thats only in its baby steps since I really want to get the trot down pat before I move on you know?
Now when we ride its more, and hour of walking, 45 minutes of trotting, and fifteen minutes of cantering... roughly. :P I try to time it out so I know, but I forget sometimes to write down what I was working on and for how long. :roll:
