Help me understand & believe this. If your job included feeding the horses how is it that 'they' stopped feeding your horse?
They snubbed & beat your horse & you just watched?
Lastly & more importantly, they wouldn't let you leave? That would be kidnapping. How did they stop you? Where were your parents through all of this?
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. :)
