    Prepare your documents and have them extremely organized and easy to present. Be professional and strive to be objective and not subjective in your statements. No " I think" or "I feel" language. Try to keep your emotions at bay if possible.
    If there is a quiet lull in the proceedings, do not feel compelled to talk and fill in the void. Quiet in the court room typically means the judge is thinking, so don't make the mistake of interrupting the silence. Be confident, but be polite. Keep your words to a minimum. Relax. Arrive early. Dress well. Remember that your documents are the key and not "he said, she said. Relax. Treat your nemesis cordially as it will show that it is purely a professional matter and not a vindictive one.

    Be prepared, be polite, be professional and do not interrupt. Less is indeed sometimes more. You'll do great !

    My very best to you

    If you paid by cheque, have all your cancelled cheques. If you don't have them the bank should have a record. Even if you name is on the court docket it could be months. This is small claims. I've learned from experience - dress well to show your respect, it does matter.

    I do have evidence, pictures, etc. I suppose we'll see.
    I also forgot to mention I am a licensed vet tech. In addition I have a very good friend who is a lawyer, who will help me out.

    I suppose I can at least try and see what happens.

    You should have received 30 days written notice of a fee increase. Make a note of when the increases occurred and that there was never written notice. I'm pretty sure it will work out in your favor.

    There were two since I moved there, so that's good. :)

    Also, when you moved there, there had been a certain expectation of care (bedding, watering, feed, etc.) With new management, changes were made without prior notice and that the level of care has been considerably reduced yet the rates increased. (this is something the judge will understand).

    At least you got your horse safely out of there! Good luck with the court situation.

    Honestly, win or lose, you're right, getting him out of there was the best thing I could do. I feel like a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders, not having to worry.
    The new facility is amazing, the people are wonderful, the hay is gorgeous. He already lost his hay belly! My farrier barely recognized him when I had him trimmed. :)
    I think the moldy junky hay was causing the hay belly I couldn't get rid of.

    Take now pics, I'm sure you have pics of him with the hay belly. That will show an increase in the quality of care.

    What date did you move ? What is the comment moved Nov 19 2011 ?
    If you had your horse there through Dec and Moved in Jan you should not have cancelled the check that paid Dec 15 to Jan 15. Or is the check you cancelled have paid board from Jan to Feb ?

    The contract states the horse will be fed hay and grain with no specifications to type of hay or grain or amounts. Good luck.
