After being at a few barns and see how things can go south quickly, I take my tack and supplies home before even mentioning to the BO that I am leaving. I've heard and seen horrible situations, and always quietly plan ahead to take everything before even mentioning I'm leaving.

I take everything at the same time, horse and tack. By taking tack and leaving horse, you are giving them a heads up.

MHM! Definitely a lesson learned. I never had to do anything like this before... Neither has my family. It's been quite... stressful and weird.

Did you keep the letter that told you not to leave the property? That should clear a lot of things up if you pursue legal action.

No, it's at their house. Hopefully they're stupid enough to bring it to court.

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 ...
I don't know that it would be kidnapping as they didn't take her anywhere...more like unlawful confinement

@Samstead -- Good point. Much better charge to fight for.

@OP -- You also have a good point - "If they are stupid enough to take it to court." What would I do? I would use that against them. Get in there, WITH YOUR PARENTS RIGHT NEXT TO YOU THE WHOLE TIME, and take your stuff. Don't say a word to them. If they talk to you ignore them. If they try to physically harm you, tell them you will call the police for assault if they continue to interact with you, and if they try to go on about trespassing, tell them you will gladly take them to court. Remind them that you are sure the judge would *love* to hear all about how you were unlawfully confined to the area, how your horse was mistreated by these people, how they had stolen your personal belongings ...

My mother got in contact with them and they said they would bring all of my stuff by on Thursday. If it is not all there, we are suing... I'll let everyone know what happens then! (Might not be able to get online until Sunday evening, but nonetheless, I will keep y'all updated.)

that sounds great! I'd start warning people about them though, facebook, twitter, whatever you can do to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else, get the other people it happened to to back you up.
