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 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 :)
