Not the "legal" thing to do but..

I'd just go get my horse. If she threatened to charge me with anything I'd quickly let her know murder may need to be included if she didnt get the heck outta my way. Tell her that you will see her in court but untl she wins a court case that it is YOUR horse and will remain in your posession until a judge tells you otherwise.

As somebody mentioned, I would contact the people who had leased the horse as a companion. They quite possibly don't know what is going on, or else may not be as good of friends with this person as you think. Furthermore, you don't know until you ask. Did this person walk all over you in your time with her? Is she just a downright bully? It sounds like she knows your not going to stand up for yourself and is taking what she can. You need to stand up to her now and let her know you will not be bulled.


I'm glad you are keeping a papertrail on everything... and I do hope that everything works out for you.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

Maple, I have thought about going and doing exactly what you said, but I am doing everything I can to keep the negative and nasty behavior on her part so that when I go to court (which I got a quick court date for the 20th of Sept.), I am hoping they can see that she is the one that is being unreasonable and crazy. And, even though she has my horse, I have already been told I am not welcome which means I would be trespassing to go get him and she could have me arrested.

Believe me, I understand wanting to take action and I really want to. I am not a sit back and take it kind of person. However, making thinks bad on myself, won't help my pony and can hurt my court case.

The people that borrowed him for companion animal are very close friends of hers and quite frankly are not my favorite people. I loaned them my pony solely for the benefit of their elderly horses as I felt bad for the horse. They are good people, we just don't see eye to eye on some things.

Id be freaking out.
Im wishing you the best, this person sounds completely nuts. Once you get your horse back, id move him/her far away from them as possible and make sure that the BO doesnt try to steal him back. ( you never know what they could be thinking.)
But then again, Im very paranoid and protective when it comes to my animals. Lol.

subbing to this.

Good job on keep everything recorded. Evidence is what you need, and you have it. You paid your board, there was no contract stating you have to pay for training, and she has not providing a written invoice explaining exactly why you would owe her anything. The horse is your property. It's good that you are doing it the legal way. If it was me, I'd snap the padlock, take my horse out, put a new lock on the door, lock it and leave. Just to be bratty. Being an Army wife, I am very, very protective over what is mine, and I would happily knock this lady out lol

Well, I ended up having to pay her $1700 to get my pony back. Hard to prove a negative. :( BUT, she was after $9200, which was $1000 more than her "seizure" notice said after I sent her the court papers. The judge figured out she was lying about it quickly, wouldn't even let her witnesses speak as she knew they were there to lie. Because I had no written proof that I had verbally rescended my sales contract from when I hurt my back, she was awarded $3400. However, when I reminded the judge that he wasn't there for over 2 years (but I didn't have dates to prove it) she gave me $1700 credit for that. She was so pissed she started making a scene in the court room, accosted my children telling them to stay the f***( off her property, then told me my husband was trying to cheat on me, told him I was cheating on him and gave him a bunch of made up details, then when I went to get him, she had blocked her drive sideways with her car and wouldn't let me or the police on the property, yes I brought the police. She flips us off everytime she drives by and she rides her horses past us to flip us off all the time. ( she lives a mile away) She refused to give me my saddle, halter, lead rope, or a book my daughter had written and was letting her read (only copy-hand written). Lied and said my tack belonged to the therapy place on her property. Since it wasn't listed in the court papers, there was nothing the police could do. I am considering taking her back to court as since then, I have figured out that I believe she actually sold my horse to someone else, thinking I wasnt' going to fix my fence and would never find out and that is why she freaked out when she found out I was taking him home. It has been quite the mess. I have them both boarded close by me now and I have half my fence fixed to bring them home. Thank you all for your support!

Congratulations on getting your horse back! I'm sorry you have to deal with her bad attitude, though.

I'm a little vengeful as well. I found out about a miniature horse she was looking at to buy right after this. All be ****ed if she was using my money to buy it. Took me three days to track it down by only a picture and a nickname as I didn't have her registered name. I found her and bought her before she could go get her. She later posted that she didn't want her anyway as she had laminitis. She didn't. I had her feet checked and trimmed. Nothing wrong with them. She is a doll, too! Homozygous for tobiano and I bought a stallion mini (26") that is sorel with a flaxen mane and he is homozygous for red. Both are championship blood line and he has like 6 titles under him already. They are about 14 years old and both like little pocket puppies, so sweet!

I plan to contact the organization I think she sold him to to bring the mess to the attention of the board as I am sure she lied to them quite extensively. Once I get my ducks in a row, I plan to go back after my tack and my $1700 for fraud.

So glad you got you're horse back and good luck on getting your tack and the $1700 back as well. I truly hope it works out for you. The lady will have to face her sins in the end!
