Usually, I ride 5 days out of the week, but I WILL be at the barn at least every day to quickly check on them, even if I am not riding.

At the present moment ..... I am at the barn twice a day, every day. Red gashed his leg, bad, and he needs an anti-biotic fed to him twice a day.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

not a horse owner, but i go to the barn everyday. now that school has started (im in my first year of college), i have tried to cut it back to six days a week. i work at the barn 4-5 days a week and normally ride about three days a week - lessons and friends horses. once i get my own horse, i will probably be going everyday again even during the school year.

2-3 times a week. I used to be at the barn every free minute as a teenager, but now that I have a job, a family, two dogs, and the barn is about an hr away, I am worn a bit thin.
Luckily, I can bring the dogs to the barn with me.

Not complaining though, I am happy I get to keep my horse at all, and the care at our barn is great.

2-3 times a day, every day.

Hi All!

I'm the stable boy, and the manure management specialist.

So morning and evening, seven days a week, unless I can talk The Missus into doing the feeding so I can go fishin'.

And The Large Children get quite indignant if the breakfast wagon is late . . . ;-)

ByeBye! Steve

4-6 days a week, just to groom, do some ground stretching and little ab exercises, and feed him treats.

Any time I have boarded a horse away from home I try to be at the barn every day barring unusual circumstance at lest long enough to take my horse out walk him around, look at his stall and his poop and see what the barn is feeding. You simply can not trust the barn owner or the stable help to take the time see every little thing that may turn into bigger things quickly. Once you establish a good relationship with the barn and KNOW for a fact they are competent and will notify you about all changes in your horse, then you can back off a little, but always be diligent.

twice a day, 7 days a week

The blood runs hot in the Thoroughbred and the courage runs deep. In the best of them, pride is limitless. This is their heritage and they carry it like a banner. What they have, they use. - C.W. Anderson
