What to do if someone keeps your horse without your permission...

Hey guys so I just wanted to know if there was anything I could do about this situation that I was in.

So a friend of my mine(well was a friend) lives in the country and has land. I am only 18 and she was as well, but I also asked her parents for permission and they were all gung-ho about the situation. Her mother had horses in the past and had wanted them for awhile.
Long story short, my friend and I got in an argument and she pretty much kicked him out and told me I should move him right away. There were also some other factors of her shadiness that I didn't want to put up with anymore as well. So I went through a lot of nonsense to find another place to keep him. I wasn't planning on telling her when I was moving him because I thought that it didn't pertain to anything.

She asked me a couple days before I was going to move him, when I was moving him. I said Monday, which was a few days away. She preceded to tell me that I was rude for not telling her and that they "loved him" and wanted to say goodbye. Blah blah blah. So monday comes rolling around and her mother texts me and wants to know where he is going and if the owners knows. (Because he is a free lease). I informed her that the owner knew and was fine with it. Then she told me that she wasn't going to let me move him unless she heard from the owner. Which really irked me because he is technically mine and any decision I make shouldn't be reprimanded in anyway. I asked her how she could say I can't take him when he isn't her horse. After a few VERY frustrating hours I gave in a let her talk to the owner and then she gave me "permission" to get him.

I was going to fight her but I knew she would lock him in the pasture or some other idiotic thing.

And I was just wondering if there is any legal action I can take against her? I am meeting a private investigator soon to discuss the matter but I just wanted to know if any of you have come across a situation like this?

I apologize if you find this post completely pointless since I did get my horse, but I'm still really upset about the whole thing...

There is nothing to pursue legally, because no laws were broken - she did not keep you from moving the horse. Skip the PI - your money will be wasted.

You got the horse. There were no crimes committed. Don't waste your money on a PI.

Chalk it up to experienced gained and never do business with friends! Or family for that matter.

You got the horse-consider yourself lucky. Court fights are not cheap, save your money for the horse.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with her wanting to verify with the horse's legal owner that the move had been okayed.

No there's nothing TO do. You got the horse, problem solved. What would a private investigator possibly be able to do now, after the fact?

Private investigator for what? Typically they are hired to covertly find out information to bring facts to an attorney or court hearing. Not because your feelings are hurt.

I guess I'm confused. How is it "technically" your horse when you lease it from someone? And I don't blame the BO for wanting permission for moving the horse for the owner. I would to. You can't trust anyone; just because you said the owner gave you permission doesn't mean that they did. What if the owner comes to see the horse and the horse isnt there? The BO would be held accountable.
