seperating horses that have been together for a while?

My recent horse purchase landed me 2 "trained" horses. One is 11 and one is 17. It is my understanding that the 11 year old (mare) has been around the 17 year old gelding her entire life. I'm not sure if they have ever been ridden seperate but they belonged to a couple who rode together. The question is this. I went monday with the idea of riding the one horse away from the second horse at the trailer. (It got dark on me so I ended up walking her) This was basically an experiment for the upcoming elk hunt. To see if I would be able to ride her away. She did good for about a mile. Then she basically decided she wasn't going any farther. I can seperate them by about 5 miles. Since the field I lease is that far away and I can keep one at my house. Will it make a difference? I was told to seperate them for a few days. Anyone have any ojections to that? My corrals are pretty stout so escape shouldn't be an issue.

Shouldn't be too bad after a few days. Start riding them separate from each other after that. Right now we only have two horse but my daughter and I tend to each go in other directions when we ride. I usually am at the beginning of the ride with my friends and she heads off to the end with hers so the horses don't often ride close to each other nor in sight of each other.

Good luck to you!
