I'm sure everyone is in agreement thus far. A week off will be just fine.

I haven't been able to even make it to the barn for the past 4 days because of work and my night classes, so it looks like he'll have an even longer break lol.

I'm just hoping he doesn't turn into a hot head again and go back to his old self and want nothing to do with riding...

He might get an idea or two in his head over the layoff, but I think that will be easier to deal with than having him confused by another rider.
Have a good vacation!

Just let him have off, but maybe have someone check up on him. That's what I do.. I don't leave him completely alone because if he hurts himself I want it to be handled right away instead of a week or so after.

I went out today and he was an angel!

I think the week and a half break was good for him. He was better than I even remember him being. He was full of energy tho, he threw in quite a few farting bucks which is very unusual for him...and he willingly cantered, and canter, and cantered without me having to get after him (he gets incredibly lazy lol). He was AMAZING with his transitions too...the best I've ever seen him do. It was instant, right when I said the word he did what I asked.

Although he did try to walk off on me when I had my foot in the stirrup about to hop on so I backed him up and made him stand before I got back on and he was fine, just needed a reminder. He rode wonderfully too. He did great with his stopping and backing up which we were having trouble with previously...still need work with stopping, but once stopped he backs up nicely. We still have work to do but I'm happy with our progress :)

Just thought I'd clear up his bucking was while I was lunging him before riding...not while I was in saddle :)
