As long as i can get away with! I could spend all my time on the yard but unfortunately work and my OH wouldn't be too pleased. On a work day its about 1 hour in the morning and 2 hours in the evening including riding time.......at the weekends it ranges from about 3 hours in total to all day
About 15 minutes before work , check they are alive and throw them breakfast....
And an hour after work, poo pick paddock, give them both a groom and tea then home.
On my days off I generally potter around there for hours
I wouldn't know one of those if it came up and bit me on the nose!!!
Spend upwards of an hour in the morning and an hour in the evening (minimum), up to the whole day long!! Love being with our beautiful mares, riding and pottering around with jobs. Fortunatly OH has his mare too and we do them together - otherwise he would come a poor second and I'd never see him!
I'm currently spending 3hrs a day min. even if i'm trying to be quick!! More at weekends or if the OH is away. Hopefully this will be less (on the days I need to be quick and have a social life!) when the weather gets better and there is less mud to clean off! Hate this weather, poor horses are swimming in mud at the mo.
HAHAHA 0h you poor buggers that have a life/work outside of horses - I used to be one of you speed yarding before/after work. Now I live the dream, I own and run my own equestrian centre and spend 12 hours x 7 days. Mind you, would like to take a holiday, only been 5 years since we did! Love it!
Well . . . without riding, it's probably an hour or so in the morning turning/mucking out . . . and then another 30 mins or so in the evening bringing him in and putting him to bed . . . if I ride/lunge/long rein, that time goes way up . . . I like to faff.
About 2 hours a day during the week including riding and between 3&6 at weekends and day off as do full muck out one day (deep litter during week) and poo picking the others. Also at weekends a substantial chunk of that is spent talking and catching up with people I haven't seen in the week lol!
10 mins in the morning - check he's still got 4 legs, give breakfast (although that has stopped recently, with him feeling a little too well in himself!). Evenings range from about an hour if I don't ride (there's talking to be done! And I love grooming/sweeping/making him and the stable look smart) to about three hours if I do ride.
I'm a teacher with a partner who works during the summer holidays - so hols are all day every day at the yard! Especially as at the yard I've just moved to, the lovely people on both sides of stable also get school holidays and the hacking goes for miles
