We understand that colloquially, he is yours. However, legally, you have zero collateral to complain about. You may be training him, but he is the BO's horse. If she so chooses to un train him right out from under you, that is her decision to make, and she doesn't have to inform you when she does it.
It is unfortunate that she's flighty enough to let one bad ride end your lessons on a specific horse but maybe its for the better. You could be put on another horse, and in a few weeks get put back on Chief and have a whole new perspective. That's what lessons are about!
