Horses with good educations do not revert to poor behavior with time off. If you are having to start over every time your horse has a week or more off, there is a hole in the training. Now don't get me wrong, you will lose fitness and some suppleness but the training should still be in tact. If it is not, it is time to reevaluate the basics and / or evaluate the horse for a physical problem. Horses don't forget what they have been taugh if it was taught well and without tension.
