So I figured I'd make a journal of Chinga, this one shall be updated almost every day. Well first off some information on Chinga before I got him. When I first met Chinga he was an 8 year old, OTTB gelding. He was generally nuts, he is my first horse and I had only just gotten into riding more then once a week. I had ridden some nutty and green horses in my life. He was majorly small and calm for an OTTB who had only been off the track for around a month (He was 15.3hh) he was also very under weigh! I spent about a month knowing and loving him at his previous owners place until one day mum finally agreed to let him be mine. We posted flyers around and got a call one day. From a young girl with a pony named Pumpkin (PumpkinzMyBaby22).
Soon the day arrived that my new project horse arrived :) I was super excited! Chinga was meant to arrive at 6:00am. He was coming on a truck with all the other race horses -- although he was going to his new home instead of the race track -- something happened that he ended up arriving after the race horses. My horse speant eight hours on the truck. When Chinga finally arrived he was pacing and ready to get off the truck. I led him off the float, I was so proud. Although just before he arrived we had a phone call telling us his legs were massively swelled and not to worry about it and just exercize him and it would go down. So that's what I did, he was perfect :) The amazing horse is was. Although two weeks later this fun wore off.. So after around 12 months of rearing, bucking, bolting, kicking out, spining, ect. We finally got somewhere. Although this was after many tears and falls!
Thats all for tonight as I am off to bed! But will continue tomorow!
