And everything else his done for me?

Maddy, you're thirteen. How old are the majority of these posters? Adults. Experienced adults who know what they're talking about. If you don't want to hear what they have to say, stop posting threads like these.

Maddie, what has that horse done for you? Has he ran done to the shops and bought you milk? Chinga isn't human Maddie.

Thats where you don't get it. Horses don't think like us. When he got you over the jump, it was self-preservation. He didn't say "oh no if I don't lengthen my stride maddy will fall"....he's a horse, not a human

When I took my worst fall one day. I was alone. I lay there for two hours, who stood by my side. Who protected me. Chinga. I know its stupid but honestly think about it. There was plenty of good grass to eat, why did he stand by me that whole time. Because he cared.

Ok Maddie, look you're not going to take a scrap of advice from anyone, that much is very clear. I've tried to support you but also give you an adult perspective on what's going on, and that's not good enough for you.
Would you prefer me to tell you that 'from the horses I've seen come back from trainers to their owners, they ALL act beautifully forever and every and pop rainbows and butterflies out of their bottoms when they gallop'. I myself have worked on horses for people who have asked me to do so, Have got those horses going softly under saddle and resolved the issues the owner was having. Then I'll go back and check up on them a couple of weeks later, and sure enough, I can see the problem starting all over again.

So Maddie, sorry but you're clearly not going to listen to anything anyone says, don't try to get me onside on facebook from now on, I only want to hear from you if you've actually begun to take on board some of what people have tried to help you with. I don't have the time to spend on a hopeless case, a young girl that wants help but doesn't know how to take it. Once you grow up a little, you'll realise just how you come across.

Hon, he is a horse. Maybe you just have too much emotionally invested in an animal that is too much for you. You sound like an abused woman sticking up for her pos husband because he doesnt beat her ALL of the time.

Horses are herd animals. Most of them will either stay with their owner, or take off and find someone to be with. They hate being on their own. On their own they are threatened, so staying with you was probably the safest thing to do Chinga thought if there were no other horses or people in the vicinity.
I bet if there was another horse nearby he would have taken off with that horse and left you behind.
