I have had my gelding in full training now most of the show season. He is ridden 6 days a week and jumped 2 of those days. He is currently at his most fit. My concern is that I am leaving for New York (sunday the 26th) and will not be back until the following Sunday. With that being said, my team is going to a big "A" show from Wednesday to Sunday. Which means anyone that may have been riding my horse while I am away, I.e. My trainer and/or the assistant trainers, will be gone! I am very concerned that not only will he go nuts sitting in his stall from Wednesday to Sunday, but that he will also regress in his training and his fitness. What do ya'll think?
My boyfriend (not a horse person) is confident enough to lead him to the turn out and let him run around in there for a while... but i'm not super keen on that simply because he isn't able to wrap his legs or deal with a thrown shoe, in the event that my horse goes nuts in the turn out!
What do you folks do when you go away? This is the first time I will be away from him since I bought him. So i'm a wee bit concerned
