leaving one horse behind at home

What do you do when you have three horses and two always go out so one is always left at home?? The option to pony is not an option.
Do you just let them scream and look?? We did only have two horses for a few years now and both my husband and I ride so one will get left by itself. We aren't gone long - 3 hours max.
Will they ever get used to it??

some get used to it and some will always scream.

Our trails took us well away from traffic so our Shetland would just come along. Many times we'd left her home alone but she always figured out how to escape and she'd come tearing after us. My arab was a great one to pony. Never felt him on the halter. If I didn't look it's like he wasn't there.
