Have you ever taken a break from riding and if so for how long?

Have you ever taken a break from riding and if so for how long?
I took a break for almost a year due to injury and I missed it sooo much! Couldn’t wait to get back into the saddle!
Yes, I have just recently for about three months. Most people break for about three weeks, which is all I would have needed, but the main reason for my break was money issues. Breaks are good if you are losing interest in riding but don’t want to. I suggest stopping for a few weeks to a month, or more depending on you personally. If it takes you four months tickets get motivation back, then that’s what it’ll take. Don’t push yourself. Relax and take your time.
Yes, for 2 Years. I leased a horse and had no desire to buy her so I sent her back and took a break. When I came back, I ended up buying 2 then a 3rd lol.
Just had a 3 month break after I broke my wrist and had to have surgery. Not fun!
6 weeks when I broke my arm last year, worst time of my life!
I took a 2 year break without riding and it was the worst two years of my life.
