Tough question! It varies for me. Minimum 5 hours. LAst week I rode for... about 12 hours. I was out almost every day it was great!

SO remember the horse I said I was working with? The mare QH/Freisian? Well I rode her today! She wasn't bad actually! Although it was strange: she would NOT go on the right lead. She went on the left but not the right. She did both for her owner but not me and me and her owner ride almost exactly the same. I even did tight circles to the right and she'd still only pick up the left lead. ALthough when I asked her to gallop to the right she picked up the right lead. It was very strange. SO I'll work on it with her for a while. Suggestions for next time I ride her?

Are you sure it's not something your doing with your balance? Or your seat? What is your exact process of - okay, canter on the right lead.

What do you do - with your hands? your legs, your seat, etc.

Ok the process. I don't normally think of all these things when I ask to canter with cheyenne I usually only have to bring back my outside leg but I was thinking of all these things today when the lead wasn't working:
Bring back my left leg
Pressure on the girth with my right and pressure with my left leg as well
Turn my head to the right
Move my body to the right a bit (that's what I sometimes have to do with Chey too)
Turn satyra's head to the right a bit
Right hand slightly up more than the left
I was doing all these things and she still went on the left lead. At onee point I turned her in tight circles to the right and she still always went on the left. The only time she went on the right is when I asked her to gallop to the right. It was strange.

Had a nice, small hack last night - full moon, gorgeous forest, snow makes everything a winter wonderland, bareback with one of my new trail buddies, also bareback. Snickers did well, didn't spook even once, though it was his first hack in the new trails.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.

So the paddock just dried out.

Then we had 10 minutes of rain which turned into flash flooding. Far out.

There is one principle that should never be abandoned, namely, that the rider must first learn to control himself before he can control his horse. This is the basic, most important principle to be preserved in equitation - Alois Podhajsky

I have not ridden since October.
I feel really bad after reading how much you all are riding.
Need some inspiration, its a muddy mess here.

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!
