Way to go, Killy! I wish I was closer to my horse, your setup sounds pretty darn good! Including the supportive hubby joining you!

I am jealous Killy I completely forgot about tracking the time so I have no idea how much I have actually been in the saddle this year - not nearly as much as I would like to have been, I know that!

WOOW Killy. I lost track of mine in July and August but I am only up to about 30 hours. I think I have far more time into feeding and shoveling than riding. You are an inspiration for me to do better.

WOW Killybean! That's amazing! CONGRATS! I don't think I could find that much time! I've only made it to 160 hours. Of course it has been one of the wettest years making it too dangerous (slippery with all the mud) to even consider going out to ride.

I guess I have some catching up to do!

Thanks...but I must add that we had a GREAT year for riding (w/out your mud!!!) Usually we just have to "cowboy up" and head out in the rain, or snow, or cold, or darkness...but I've been extra determined to work him and start him back from scratch to fill the holes in his training, and we've had good weather. Hard work has paid off and my boy is now know as the "steady eddie" of the barn to accompany the green horses out on the trails.

I've found that my Riding Log chart has become a riding journal of sorts...it's fun to look back at some of the notes that I written down about the rides. Even when not tracking actual ride time, I will keep up the "journal" portion.

Does anyone else click on the others Riding Log charts and read them? Pretty interesting to do so....even the different temps for different areas is fun to note!

Officially as of December 31st, 2009...I clocked in at 435.5 hours. I'm hoping to accomplish many more of my goals for 2010, including more work with cows.
Here's to a happy and healthy 2010 to all of you and our 4-legged buddies, with extra thoughts going towards Annie, Marley and any others needing some special care right now!

Wow! Congrats! I could only wish to be able to ride that many hours. I do wish I could have made it to 200, but I blame that on the work and the weather.

I have only a bit over 28 hours recorded. Hookie was of & on with a sore front foot and I missed recording some in mid summer but I did ride on 12/31 and New Years day.

I am going to track again in 2010.

I think Killy was the record holder this year but not all have reported yet.

I am pretty sure Killy holds the record!!

Darn, I'm almost embarassed to state my hours! In fact, I was shocked to see how little I'd actually ridden this year. 95 1/2 hours, total. 56 hours on Warsong, only 8 hours on Butterbaby, and 31 1/2 hours on Butterbrickle. It is no wonder that Butterbrickle is barely past green-broke, even though she is 7 this year.

I rode 161 hours & 55 minutes last year. I rode in temps from 19 to 89F. Killy, you put me to shame with our your hours, riding in Alaska for goodness sake!
I'll use you as a motivator for 2010. (What would Killy do?)

I logged 143.25 hours in 2009. Could have been much better! My excuses are: broken leg, horse in hospital, and too dang lazy. Hopefully I can improve on this some in 2010. I have started a new sheet for this year. Is everyone else going to continue it? I think it was a great idea. First time I really ever had any idea how much time I had spent in the saddle. Kind of embarrassing, but it does give you an idea, and something to work for. Way to go Killy! Amazing job. I bet some professionals don't even beat you.

I was forgetful and stopped logging my time

If we are going to do it again this year, I will TRY to be better - my excuse, I am old(er) and my memory just ain't what it used to be

You guys all did great. I record my time on the Arabian Horse Assc program. I only got in 51.8 hours of riding time. I did ride all year long too. Last time was 12/31. I sure hope to improve my time in 2010 but I refuse to subject myself to riding in temps below 20. LOL. Great job to you guys though.

I'm disappointed that I rode so little, but another riding season is coming up, and maybe I can do better this year! I've yet to ride in 2010, and it is supposed to get down to below zero this weekend, so it will probably be awhile before I can climb into the saddle again.

One thing I'm really hoping for is that this will be the year I get Butterbrickle out on the trails!

I'm sorry to say that I only logged 59 hours! I may have not recorded some short rides but it's a disappointing total to say the least. No excuse other than the wet conditions we had this summer and Bud's foot issues.

I've nothing to record this year yet either but plan on a much higher total for 2010!

Congrats, Killy! You put us all to shame so I won't whine about how cold it is. LOL!

I forgot to post the temperatures that I rode in, I think the coldest was about 0F with -5F wind chills, and the hottest was over 80F, most likely 86F.

I'd like to do more trail riding & camping, but will have to see how my mom does, & whether I can get away.

Mostly, I'd like to do more riding, overall, even if just at home. I wasted a lot of time last year; days when I could have been riding, but just didn't.

And I'm hoping to be able to bring Butterbrickle to the DE ride this year! We are going to have to do a lot of work at home, first, both groundwork & under saddle. Not to mention working on trailer loading, at which she is not at all good.

Ok now that I have the right topic page. LOL I got 150 hours in. Not as many as I would have liked, but with CMO you get your run in 2-4 hors and your done for the day. Normally when camping we do 5-8 depending where we are. We'll see how it goes this year though. Jill an d I decided we're not going for #1, but plan on taking out new people and showing them the ropes.

150 hours is a good number for sure. Equivalent to about an hourevry 3 days. I am determined to spend more time horse back this year.

Good plan about the CMO.

Sorry to revive an old topic, but like others I take my iPhone with me and use a program called Runtastic.

It logs the distance, speed, altitude and works out the calories burnt (So I can see if I can have that Pizza after all) :)

Here's a link to my last beach ride.
