I just don't like to see people get hurt, especially when it can be avoided.

I understand you want what's best for your boy, and I certainly hope you get it for him.

Safety is first, for you and him.

So it hasn't been an extremely short time, I'm out there everyday, sometimes all day with him so It's been alot of hard work to get him where he is. Sometimes he still gets cinchy, he still seems to wanna blow his stomach out when girthing, but it's progress to just not have him rolling in the cross ties, which he did even on his way to my place and he cut his eye and leg, both have already healed. I feel like I'm being pressured, if you don't believe me then don't. It's okay I'm not offended.
My paint was abused 3.5 years back by the man. Pretty long time, huh? She still doesn't like men at all and in general not a "people lover" (won't come to strangers, won't socialize and such). Even with all efforts we put into her. Personally I just ignore her being unhappy about it and go as nothing is happening (c'mon, my farrier and vet are guys :) ). So my point is forget about his past and treat him like normal horse, it WILL take time (may be a year, who know) to overcome those issues, but it'll come. Good luck!

Last year we rescued an abused pony. He is about 10 years old and you could not get near him. He had to be tricked to be caught.
Today he is a pain. He wraps his body around anyone entering the field looking for a treat and he was taught to give his body to me while still afraid of all humans.
He now knows the technic to beg for treats and has no problem with wrapping his body around any potential doner.
They can be turned around

We have two, one that is 35 years old who had a 2x4 and a boulder used on her to knock out her teeth because she nipped. She was about 150 pounds under weight which was a lot, she's only 12h. It took about a month for her to trust us, now you can't rid of her.....LOL

The other one was starved and locked in a barn for months. He too is the first one at the gate.

Kitten gave you some very sage advise, don't dwell on what has happened, it's done. Move forward.

If he has shown you his sweet side your well on your way. Don't let the naysayers bring you down.

I know what I'm doing is right in my heart, I couldn't live with myself if I had to let him go to someone who could possibly do that to him agian. He is my baby and he is staying with me, and even if I never ride him, I know he's happy and safe.

He shows me he wants to please, I see it in his eyes, he wants to be loved but he was hurt and it's gunna take some time to help him. And I know there will be good days and bad days, but no matter what, I'm not giving up on him. I know he wants to be loved by someone, now all I have to do is show him I'm the one he can love.
