    Unfortunately most boarding facilities are poorly managed. If you have indeed paid the board in full they have no rights to your horse, If they have some claim they need to pursue it in some legal fashion. I have owned horses for more than 30 years and have had to use boarding barns at times when I did not own horse property. Once I had a barn manager try to pull this kind of stunt and padlocked my horse's stall the day I came to pick him up. The horse transport company just cut the lock off with cutters and we took the horse and left. The manager was there and since I was not delinquent, there was nothing that he could do. I did not confront him I simply made it clear that I was taking my horse and if he had a problem,he could call the police. He didn't.

    I know what you are going through. I while back I was working at a barn so I would be able to board there. At the end of the summer when I tried to move my horses and donkeys back home they said I couldn't take them because I owed them board for the entire summer. Nothing was ever in writing because I was doing them a favor by working for them and to help run their trail riding business. They eventually let me take my donkeys home, but both ended up being bred because they were thrown in with a stud. We tried to get the police involved but there was nothing they could do. We eventually just showed up with a trailer and took back my horses. The police stopped us a few hours away, but because we had proof of owner ship they couldn't do anything. It was different becuase they were kept outside, and the barn owner wasn't smart enough to do anything about it. It is a hard situation to get out of, but once you get through it, its the best feeling ever being able to spend time with your horse again. I am really sorry you are going through this and wish I could have been more help..

    Read the whole thread lol, and I am so glad you got your horse back. There are some seriously crooked people out there who will do nasty things to get what they THINK they are entitled to. I had a similar situation happen to me when I was 16. I had just adopted an OTTB and we started boarding him at a nice enough place that was five minutes from my house, soon after we moved him there we started to notice that none of the water troughs were being cleaned or filled, fence boards weren't being repaired and had nails sticking out of them, horses in stalls had no water and were standing in filth. The crazy thing was that it hadn't been like that when we looked at the place, they had cleaned up thinking they were going to get new boarders.
    My mother and I brought it up to the woman who was supposedly running the joint and she got PISSED big time, and my mother got pissed right back ( my mom was a social worker for 23 years if that tells you anything, she will not put up with bullsh*t) and then the woman had the gall to threaten to tell the place where we got him that I was an unfit owner and she would have my horse taken away, boy let me tell you I laid into her and lit that woman's ass on fire. That ticked her off so she tried to tell the humane society that I wasn't taking care of him which they knew was a lie. She attempted to take my horse after that too, tried to hide him in the back part of another field late at night before she moved all of her horses. Had she been there and I had caught her moving him, there would have been cops all over the place and probably an ambulance. Nobody messes with my boy, just sayin lol.
    My mom did some digging and found out that she owned the farm owner upwards of 10K and was stealing money from the boarders to fund her own horse buying and show training. The owner flew in like a bat out of hell and put a lawsuit down faster than you could imagine.
    And then my mother and I ran the place for a few months before he brought in someone else, which turned out to be a terrible idea and we left after that because that's just wwaaaaaayyyy to much crap to take.
    Some people are horrible and shady as all hell, I am so sorry that she turned on you like that, there's really no excuse for it.
    You are a champ pulling through like you have :) The karma bus will make one stop: to give you tons of the good stuff and roll right over her!
