Why would you flick a lead rope at him while he is loose when you know he has had a bad experience with people hitting him with whips in the paddock? That does not make sense at all to me, either you were doing it for the reaction he gave so you could video tape it or you truly thought this was a friendly gesture. I don't know which is worse.

Your body language around this horse speaks volumes, you appear terrified of him. This is not the way to be around a horse that is slightly dominant anyway as the behaviour will only worsen. When you approach with a saddle blanket, do so quietly, confidently and try not to wave it at him. It should be folded and held at your side so he can see it but not be startled by it when it flaps in the wind. If you truly are this frightened of him it sounds like you could benefit from having someone else work him through these issues.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

After all the hard work you've put in!! I'm so very sorry this has happened. I hope you find someplace for him soon.

That looks to me like a gesture at self defense. The horse is already lunging at her when she flicks the lead - though she does say "she's trying to show him she won't hurt him with it"

Frankly if my horse lunged at me like that, I'd toss the lead out at him too

Maddie :( I just got home from work and saw this. Haul him down to NSW and I'll put him in one of our paddocks ASAP.

I do agree, that you need to approach him confidently. Your confidence and assertivenss will rub off on him.

May I join the kick-ass party who are going to woop this $&$&%^*?

Sorry Maddie just a quick unrelated point I have to make. PLEASE don't tie any horse, particularly Chinga in his present state of mind, to a float that is not attached to a car. Have seen that happen before, horse pulled back, twine didn't break and horse pulled float across a paddock going absolutely off it's rocker. VERY dangerous thing to do!

After reading Gidji's post I remembered, doesnt your family have a property in Armidale? Even though its pretty far away, you always have that option if you can't find anywhere else.

These are very serious allegations.

What makes you think someone would just randomly pick your horse to terrorize?

If they tied him up and beat him, he should have whip marks. Does he?

How do you know 'someone' came back a second night and assaulted him?

Who is 'we'? You and who else believe these things happened?

With all the nuts in the world abuse does happen, but I'm skeptical as to why they'd pick only your horse to attack. Crazies usually don't stop with just one animal.

Have the police been called? If not, why? Breaking and entering is a felony and animal abuse is either a felony or misdemeanor, depending on where you live.

I don't see a 'terrified' horse in those videos; I see one who knows he can walk all over his handler.
