Thank you everyone. I honestly don't know what the next step is, they came and collected his body early this morning.

I'm going down to the barn this afternoon, I feel I need to be there. I'm beyond shocked, I never imagined this could happen. It shouldn't have.

Tell yourself that there is a horse out there that will come into your life. One that needs you too. Chinga just may have fulfilled his purpose for you and has now made room for your next challenge. Look forward with curiosity....look back with fondness.

Will I ever find a partner like the one I had with my avvie horse? Maybe, maybe not. But I keep looking and experiencing.

So sorry to hear you lost Chinga. Losing a horse is always hard, but losing your heart horse feels like the end of the world. Allow yourself to go through whatever process you need to in order to grieve for him.

For months after I lost Rex I would go to where he is buried and cry for everything I lost that day. Now I find myself able to go there and smile for the things we shared and the amazing things he taught me to make me a better horseperson.

My thoughts are with you and I hope once you have taken the time you need to mourn you will be able to look back at what Chinga gave you with the same fondness that I have when I look back on my time with Rex. Not everybody gets to have a truly special horse.

So well said, Allison.

You are a wonderfully talented horsewoman Maddie...Any new horse that comes into your life will be beyond lucky. Chinga will always watch over you.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Thank you all, I went down to the barn this afternoon. Got lots of hugs and a few pony kisses, it wasn't the same as seeing Chinga out in the paddock. If I do get a new horse, I'll be taking my time, but I intend on incorporating the word 'legacy' in Spanish in there. Chinga's name was spanish, it will be his legacy - he taught me so much and deserves to be honored for that.

Sir Success. Eventer.

How horrible. I am so very sorry for your loss. What happened is heartbreaking... May Chinga forever run in eternally green fields where you will once meet again, when the time comes.

I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
