tough time deciding, move my horse to pasture or continue boarding?

Not sure if this is the right spot to put this but here's my personal dilema. I've been boarding my new horse for 3 months approximately now, my first time owning a horse as an "adult". My parents have a horse pasture about a 35 minute drive away in a different town, there are currently about 8 horses there and a donkey between 3 different owners (2 being my sisters). Because I am getting back into things I am boarding in my town so I have access to lessons and my horse is only 15 minutes away.

So my problem I am struggling with inside is I am realizing I am having a tough time finding a babysitter to get out there, my poor horse is just standing in her stall and I feel soooo guilty. So then when I do get out there she is fired up, which I don't blame her, and I don't get much accomplished. So I was thinking about moving her out to my parents' pasture but my "family" keeps giving me the stink saying she will "revert back to the wild" blah blah blah.(yet thier horses are out there) But my thinking is it would be better for her to run around free all day and then will be able to work with her better having some of her energy out. Sorry for the long post but I don't know what to do?????

I am definitely going to keep her out there at least another month so I can get some more lesson's under my belt first though.....
