Oh goodness, don't even mention it! I spent a big part of the year last year horseless, because my life took a couple turns and I knew I had to focus on my family for a while. Knew it wouldn't be fair to have a horse who I knew I wouldn't go see, so I sold my gelding and went horseless.
Years ago, as a young rider, I also spent a very short period where I had moved from Southern France where I had 4 horses to Canada and was horseless. At the time I was just beginning to get back into horses, so I spent the better part of my time helping out a riding club, or spending time at the neighbors helping with their horses.
As long as you can manage getting a ride to where ever it is you are going, there are a lot of things you can do to prepare yourself and learn more about horse so you are all set up and ready to go when you do get one.
