Okay, I'm going to type this as if it is your barn, and you want to evict a horse and it's owner.
If you want the horse gone in less than 30 days notice, you would need to cite the reason why under the contract. But if you are happy to allow her 30 days (or more - it should be as specified in the contract) the you do not have to give a notice. Merely give the adults who are in charge a letter notifying them that you are giving them xx days notice to remove the horse. State clearly and politely what must be done under the contract eg. Pay fees in full before final date, remove horse and all possessions by when, make good any damage (only if you can do this under the contract).
The letter should be clear and polite. I would suggest that you don't put in in the reason why - if at all possible. You don't need an excuse, you are not wanting them to offer to resolve the problem another way, and you are not seeking to offend. Certainly when talking to the parents you should say that their daughter's horse doesn't fit in at the establishment. They're most likely not going to like it, especially if the first they hear of you being dissatisfied with their child/her horse is a letter to leave, but this is not an instance in which you are seeking to make friends.
Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.
