First I was riding XC on Chinga and we were training with our instructor and the course was in a paddock where other horses were let out to graze. Twenty or so, and I fell off over a fence. Chinga litrally stopped dead and sniffed me with an OMG are you okay look. The other horses had actually started running and playing too, he just stood there :) I love him soo much. His also very protective of me but hi snever ran when I fell.

Sir Success. Eventer.

my first horse was a mustang gelding named musty.. he had a bad attitude and nobody trusted him..cept me. i was maybe 2 1/2-3 and i would ALWAYS end up in his pen and hang onto his legs his tail andhed put his head down nd id grab his neck nd we'd stay like that(at that time he was my aunts) well for my 7th brthday my aunt gave him to me.
One day my dad was trying to give him his wormer and we had a pen that just had a bar fr the door for him (never a problem) well musty jerked away and ran under then bar (he was bout 15hd so duno how he managd it) my da chased him for 15 mins before i walked out an upto musty grabbed hi halter and gave him the wormer haha..my dad was mad but musty was always my boy

just a small town girl with a big town dream :]

My horse and I bonded almost instantly, but i remember this one moment when I realized he must really trust me.

I was lunging him around and he started sniffing the ground, and I was like kay buddy what are you doing?
And he walked toward me, nudged me, which almost pushed me over, then he suddenly collapsed and layed down right at my feet! And he just kinda looked up and me like, "you wanna join me?" So I sat down beside him and pet him.

I've always been around people who have told me "a horse will never lay down in the presence of people, or they will but once approached, they will stand up. I mean, it makes sense. they're flight animals for goodness sake. But my horse just decided, okay time for a nap, come lay with me = ) haha. I luv him

Whenever anyone other than I, rides him - he swears alot. It's actually quite funny.

He grunts, growls and snorts whenever anyone is on his back - it's amusing :) He also braces against them, he'll drop his back, lock his jaw, tighten his poll and throw his head up in the air.

When I am on him, he's quiet as a mouse, and we just "click"

He's my baby, and he's very spoiled. I had an Animal Communicator talk to him, the first thing she said to me when she walked into the barn was "This horse will do anything for you."

I remember when an Olympic Eventer got on his back, he swore at her the whole time she rode him - it was quite funny. He wouldn't go "with" her either, he fought her, then when I got back on him and rode what she wanted me to do, she said to me "you make him look like an easy ride, but he made me work my butt off every step he took"
