That is a very sticky situation. I'm sure that anything she may say to her new BO will be negated as soon as she behaves the same way at her new barn. In the meanwhile, sending out an email to other barn owners, although I'm sure you would love to have received a warning, can open you up to a libel suit.
Were it me, I would send a copy of everything she asked for, as well as a copy of the rules you expect all boarders to follow, by registered mail. I would also be careful about her taking her horse without paying you the balance and the new charges. Keep a log of all emails and text messages in the event that she challenges you.
The sooner this boarder is gone, the better I would feel. It isn't going to get better with time.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
