How many times should you ride your horse a week?

How many times should you ride your horse a week?
About 4 to 5 days but after show then next day off.
6 days a week, gets a day off after a show.
One of mine does 6 days a week the other 3/4 times a week
Depends on the horse and what you are doing when you ride, currently I am riding once a week and lunging/groundwork every day due to some training issues. When he was in full work I rode him 4-5 times a week.
I ride mine 4-5 times a week. She gets one day rest and one day my boyfriend rides her.
I ride every other day. Just to ensure her muscles get a rest, so i ride about 43-4 Times a week.🙃
I think the minimum is 3 an maximum is everyday, but it really depends on the horse and their athleticism, as well as how long you ride and what you do!
i ride six days a week and my horses get one day off w just turnout :)
I ride everyday
I have two of them so I ride one and give the other a day off. So I ride them both about 3 times each a week. They both have Sunday as a defo rest day x
3 minimum
I ride mine 5 days a week, work him with the Pessoa 1 day, and 1 day rest (more if he needs it)
I jump 1-2 times a week at most, and flat 3-4 days 😊👍🏼
2 - 5
I like to ride 5 days a week, maybe a sixth light day when I’m free. However with exams this year I can only ride 4
they need a day or two break during the weeks and it's important to not ride them hardcore for 1 hour and a half 5 days a week. you don't want to drain them. they shouldn't reallt be jumped more than 3 times a week, make sure you balance eveything and give your horse time to rest
