Is an excellent point made. While I never lost interest, even riding alone, a riding partner having someone to ride with (even a spouse can serve that function.....did it actaully say that? :)) ) can make a huge difference and make rides more enjoyable (most of the time....guess it depends on the spouse :)) )
Of course things happen and even I gave up my horses because things that prevented me from being able to ride and take care of them. Had to put the horses first and they can go sour if left unridden or worked for a long time.
Seems like you have a plan though, so that's the first step :)
