Question how many days a week do you go to the barn?

Horse owners, just out of curiosity, how many days a week do you go to the barn?

I usually aim for three days a week~

When I was competing, I would go out and ride five days a week.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

every chance my schedule allows me too.. average 3-4 days a week though and 2-3 of them are riding days

Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot.

Most of the time I have had my horses at home, but now that I have just one horse, I keep her at my sister's and I get over there 3 - 4 times a week. About a 15 min drive.

It really depends.

If I'm rugging at night then twice a day everyday. If more feeding is needed the once a day. If feed or rugging isn't an issue then usually around 3-4 days.

I ride on Saturday and clean, mend, muck on Sunday. I travel a great deal with my job and this is the best I can do. Sigh . . .

between baseball and work there isn't much time for riding here... I do the best I can... but the feedings and the cleanings must occur daily... lucky for me they are on my property.
