I'm sorry to hear about this little scuffle. ((HUGS))
But like they say-- Practice makes permanent. And even if it dosen't make permanent, it WILL help you a lot (..you probably already know this :).
It sounds like Chinga is a very responsive horse, which, may be irritating, but it means he's at least listening to you.
And it's always good to at least KNOW what you are doing wrong so you can go back and fix the problem. Maybe you could practice on another horse before doing in on Chinga?
And for Pete's sake, you haven't jumped in 4 months! Don't beat yourself up about it :)
Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.
