    Time off completely is fine. I am also a big fan of trail rides for them this time of year. Let them get out of the arena and just spend time letting them be a horse, both with you on and off their backs. Also keeps them fresher for when you want to start working them hard again.

    Time off is fine. ;) Just watch the feed intake--you don't have to feed a horse out of work nearly as much as you do when they're in work! Then you don't have 'unused energy'.

    Remember, they will lose ALL conditioning--they may remember what you taught them, but it doesn't mean they can physically do it.

    My show horse is off now... his work starts up again in a few weeks. ;)
