The answer to this largely depends on how hard you are asking the horse to play. In the 0 goal and Academy Levels you can usually play your horse 2 chukkers each day (maximum of 3 days per week). As you move up and improve your playing ability, you’ll want to have a fresh horse for each chukker. Most Menlo members have 1 to 3 horses.
