I used to brake horses all the time. They improved so much over the few months that I worked with them. I loved them very much and guess what they were sold I moved on I was sad but I did what was best for them not what was best for me. I know you love him very much but all these threads about you problems with him are getting silly. It seems like your just looking for a atention. Please think about what your posting. I know its hard.

Honestly over all I don't know, because I've been threw hell and back and his the only friend thats been there threw it all. Because a few months back we lost my auntys horse. Who was very special to me and Chinga reminds me of him. Because I love him, his my first horse. I've had him for just over a year now and he means the world to me. Also when we do well (Like Cross Country) I could never dream of a better horse, he's taught me so much and he's still got so much to teach me. Every horse I've ridden and cared for in my life, I've never felt like they've been a friend where as with Chinga he is. Its complicated and I know I'm so attached to him because his my first horse.

But I've given up on everything I've done. Achieved nothing. I've never felt proud of myself, apart from when I'm on Chinga then I can't help but smile. Because I feel proud of US. This may sound stupid, and it didn't give me the answer I wanted it to give me but yeah.

For three years I begged my parents for a horse, you ask Jalah whos seen me with this horse, who's been there when I cry, who's been part of my inspiration to keep going and she will tell you how far we've come and she knows me as a person and knows I will never give up. I admit it, I only take the advice I want. But hey, every peice of advice I've taken gets Chinga and I closer and closer to getting somewhere. My instructor of all people was most dissappointed in me when I first got Chinga, for 6 months she didn't like the idea. But now when we ride her lessons. Shes proud. I'm proud. I keep Chinga because his taken me so far, as stupid as it sounds green horses teach you so much. Chinga taught dad to not be afraid. Dad was kicked by a horse and wouldn't even touch one, dads amazing with Chinga. I know none of that made sence and sounded stupid. But Chinga's what I live for.

Nope. I couldn't really care if I trained him or not. I'm not the one training him anyway.

OK, as a fellow OTTB owner, I'm going to level with you. I know Kayty is as well, and if she reads this she'll probably agree with me. These guys like to have a job. They like to have purpose, not just sit around and get fat in a pasture somewhere. I LOVED riding Ice, because he was so eager to please and just incredibly willing to do whatever I asked of him the best way that he knew how. Thats more or less the reason I still continue working with him, because I do believe that he can be brought back with a little bit of pushing, I did it once and I can do it again. I'm willing to seek help if necessary, but I always am going to try it first on my own. I do have a little bit more experience with horses than you, I'm also older and know when I have to suck it up and just let it go. Thats why Ice is also for sale.

Your jumping success has NOTHING to do with whether he likes you or not, or your "bond", because he probably doesn't give a crap about you. I know that Ice just puts up with me, which as it appears Chinga at this point does not do to you. Your success has 100% to do with the fact that being ridden is the one time where Chinga is confident and knows what is expected of him--if you send him over jumps, he'll go over jumps because that is what he has been trained to do, listen to his rider above all else. Its why race horses when they get tired don't give up and fall back, they keep going because they were trained to listen to the jockey who's spurring him on with a crop and his seat position.

Ice is the first horse I could really call my own, and I want the best for him, whatever that means. I know that I may not be the perfect home he deserves, but with a little bit of work I could be pretty bang up. If something comes along thats better for him in the long run, where he will be used to his full potential and be happy, by all means I'll trailer him there myself. It will be hard but I love him enough to give him to someone else.

Unfortunately our horses don't give a crap if we love them or not. If they did I'm pretty sure HAF would not have had to sell Chance because even with Lyme disease and past abuse, she would have understood how much time and effort that girl put into her. Our horses would not bolt, buck us off, or kick out at us because they would understand that they make us happy. But horses are not people.

If your horse is waht you live for you have a very pathetic life. Its ok to love your horse but what about your friends? Do you care about them? You make it sound like he is all care about.

100% agree with JSB. He wants a purpose, and he doesn't have one right now.

What the pictures are trying to show is that I've put in the lessons, effort and time into improving myself and what followed on was a massive success in Chinga's work. I know why this happened, because my seat improved and I could give him more aids. I know I have a long way to go.
