Yes! But this was just a summer arrangement. Something my horse and I could do as a learning experience gone wrong.

If someone told me & couldn't get my kid & her belongings I'd show up with an army.
They stopped providing hay for me to feed my horse... I would go to use their other hay for their horses since the deal was, I work in exchange for feed, but I was not allowed to. Nor was I allowed to purchase my own hay.

No, I didn't see them beat my horse, the neighbor told me what happened. I had since asked them not to touch her... but they still rode her.

I was scared of them, and they knew it, so I they took advantage of that and told me, in writing, not to leave, take anything off the property or allow anyone on the property. I didn't want to get anyone in trouble, so I had them park down the street and I left when they weren't home... however, I didn't get the rest of my stuff yet because there wasn't enough room in the truck. I still have thousands of dollars worth of personal items and horse equipment there... including saddles, expensive bridles, supplements, a TV, etc.

But we're going to court to get the rest of my things back. :)

I'm not getting how they can tell you in writing not to leave. You are a minor, there are so many agencies for child welfare that would have gotten involved. Your parents could have come when they were not home and you could have taken all your stuff and your horse, and since you're a minor they couldn't have done anything about it without getting themselves into major trouble. I'm having trouble understanding this.

To be honest I'm not entirely sure how it got to the extent that it did, but... it did.

Well then I wish you well, and I'm glad that you got your horse out first, possessions can be gotten later or replaced.

Gosh that's horrible! You shouldve gotten some kind of evidence like photos or video and always, alway remember to have a written contract of some kind. It always seems to end in disaster if you don't. I hope your situation gets better!

Hey thanks! Yeah, I'm figuring that out :)

That does sound like kidnapping. Not letting you leave the property? Not letting your parents visit? I honestly think with a decent lawyer, you could make the case. Kidnapping and theft, since they say they took your stuff and their horse.

Also wondering how your parents didn't flip out and show up with the US Army, and how anyone could prevent you from feeding your horse if you had access to it ...

If they were not home when you moved the horse, you should have taken all your tack with you then.
Most horse trailers, are at least 2 horses, so there should have been room in the trailer. Also it was just you and your friend, so there was a back seat of a car, and the trunk.

Looking back, I should have taken my tack. There wasn't a tack compartment, but there was an extra stall to put it in the trailer...

However, the back of the pickup and the backseat were full of her horse tack because her horse trailer doesn't have a tack room... and it was sort of a last minute arrangement so there was no time to pull it all out.
