Leaving my green horse for a week
I'm going to be gone on vacation for about a week, maybe a little longer. I'm debating whether or not to have my friend work with him while I'm gone or just let him sit for that time. He is still very green, he's been under saddle almost 2 months now, and I'm worried that if I have my friend work with him she will unconsciously teach him bad habits (anyone but me for that matter, not just her. I'm teaching him how I want him to do things which may or may not be different than how someone else does it with there horse), which isn't hard to do...if they get away with something once they'll keep trying to do it. I don't know if it'll be better for him to just sit, or risk him picking up bad habits from being worked by someone other than me.
What would you do? I think I'm just being a paranoid mom...lol
