I have scheduled lessons 2-3 times a week, so I try and ride then, but life gets in the way so on a normal week, we ride 1-3 times a week and lots of groundwork in between.

I MIGHT ride once a month. Depends on the weather and how much work I have to do at the barn. I spend most of my barn time doing chores because I work to pay off board.

like everyone else, it depends. in the winter, there is no telling. Hopefully 1-2 times a week for both of my rideable girls. If that

During the spring, they get ridden every other day (since I have two and I still have to go to school, I cannot fit them both in everyday)

In the summer, 6 days a week

We normally ride 3-5 times a week but we are having some family health issues that are keeping us from our girls on weekends. We're only doing once a week, maybe twice at the moment
With the weather getting nicer I plan on trying to get some saddle time in the mornings.

I ride everyday as long as I'm not sick. In the summer, I can ride around 6 - 8 different horses a day. But otherwise only 1 or 2 horses on weekdays and 3 or 4 horses on weekends during winter, spring, and fall.

I tend to put riding and my horses above everything else I do...

I try to ride 5-6 days a week. I usually always give Nelson 1 day off.

During the winter, I can ride because I board at a barn that has an indoor, so the snow doesn't effect anything.

During the Spring, Summer and Fall - I ride outdoors alot. I have a lesson once a week, where I do arena work and the rest, I hack, hack, hack and then hack some more after I hacked.
