At my barn I pay Full Board so even when I'm home the barn still does everything for me expect for basically Ride and Groom. So when I leave the barn still just takes care of my horse because I pay for it.
But for the riding it depends on how long I'm gone. If it's like 4 days or less I just let him have those days off. If it's like 5 days or more I'll try to have a friend or one of my trainers hop on my horse for a bit just to get him working
My two are at a livery yard so they are on full livery but get the week off from riding/ if they lived at home i would get a friend to check in (look after them) but still give them the week off, hope that makes sense 😂😊
The barn's horses go on vacation too ;) they go in a large field on the countryside where the farmers keep an eye on them ! Some owners do the same with their horses too, they rent a field or pay a farmer
