Maybe you just need to try something new with your horse, or shake up the routine? When I had my last gelding (for 8 years), we would go through those "boring marriage slumps" where there's no passion. But we didn't get a divorce, we went out and tried new activities - we tried barrel racing, jumping, working with cattle, etc. (my western pleasure horse). And we loved it! Then we went back to our "normal" work with renewed passion.
You also might want to go try out a new horse for a couple days. I was getting a little "ho-hum" with Lily, looking at all the other pretty yearlings out there. We got one another yearling and BOY DO I LOVE MY LILY, haha! Once I realized how hard it is to reconnect and train with a new horse, I'm in so much love with my yearling because of our familiarity and "bond". (not that I would ever sell her, she's mine forever, but sometimes you don't realize what you have until you work with something else)
