Thanks guys! I never meant to hurt Chinga and I will NEVER take his food away again. The only time I give him less food is when he is not being ridden, instead of having one biscute of hay and one bucket of his mix he only gets one biscute of hay and half a bucket of his mix. Other wise he goes insaine.

Wow...why would anyone ever do that to their horse? Or any animal for that matter.

I never meant to hurt Chinga, this is what I was told. I will NEVER do it again!

I would just like to add that this (half bucket) was only used because it rained for two weeks and he was going crazy. Galloping around his paddock continuously and it was very muddy and wet in his paddock and I did NOT want him to slip.

I know the feeling. I had three bad falls in a row - one from a bucking colt, one (complete accident) from my trustworthy mare while running poles which broke my arm in a bad way, and then again (while I was trying to regain my confidence from the previous accident) from my older mare who bucked me off. I truly believe she bucked due to uncomfort in her bride. She had been tossing her head that day. Either way, my confidence was pretty shook up! And, as fear works in mysterious ways, I can still ride my older mare and the naughty pony but would have a nervous brake down when attempting to get on my colt - who logically speaking will probably never buck. I've slowing been getting over my fear. It took my best friend just about forcing me to get on and then not let me off again until I could sit on him calmly. He of course, could care less. He was just happy to be hanging out with me.

I guess my point is, fear stinks but you will ride again! Personally, I think if you can't be relaxed on your horse, you are not ready to get back on. Your fear will transfer to your horse and make him fearful. He looks to you as a leader and if you can't lead in the saddle, keep leading on the ground until you're ready.

Good luck.

I have had the same bucking problem, my boy had been a complete pain and I lost my confidence with him. A girl who used to ride him and has been at uni doing horse stuff offered to come and sort him out. We were out for a ride trotting and all of a sudden he bucked and kept bucking and spining with her until she fell off! She got back on and we had an uphill canter and he was fine. Still trying to sort out in my head why he did this. He is tempremental but has never ever done this before!! Not ridden him yet, just lunge but he often throws a small buck when cantering on the lunge cos he feels under pressure. If you figure your issue let me know!

Keeping them from their food ISNT a punishment and whoever taught you that is dead WRONG. You should print some stuff out and prove to them they are wrong. Horses depend on us to care for them since they are not in the wild and can't graze on their own. It is our duty as horse owners to care for them. You cannot control the mind of a horse, let alone any other living thing - so they will act up sometimes. The answer is confidence and trust between the horse and rider. Once you achieve that you will go far. How can your horse trust you if you starve him? Naturally horses graze 16 or 18 hours a day - obviouslly they don't get that being penned up so they need the correct amount of feed per day. I don't see how withholding food from him would make it better, I would think it would make the situation worse, he would be hungry and only want to eat. Don't you get a bit cranky when you are hungry?

End of rant... Sorry, but this is the silliest thing I have heard of. You are young and you need to educate yourself before you believe anything someone says - including those of us on the board. Google is a useful tool.
Thank you for this - I was sitting here shaking my head and trying to formulate an intelligent response to what was said.....

OP, I know you love your horse and that you do want what is best for both of you. I think, though, that you may not be in the best position to make those determinations yourself - BOTH of you would benefit greatly from some assistance (professional). Also, I think that until you get a firm grasp on the basic things that will help prevent events like today you need to slow-down and backtrack a bit in your work with Chinga. Focus on the ground work and the basics at a walk. When, and only when, you are at 100% at one speed you move up a speed. I know that riding is incredibly exciting and just walking about the field is not the most fun on horseback, but it is those building blocks that create a well balance horse and rider.

Oh and yeah he never gets his food taken away from him anymore. As soon as I read these posts I stopped doing it.
