Let her know that you plan on putting a notice in the newspaper regarding the debt that you will be naming her and the amount of debt owing for the care and feeding of one (color) commonly known as (horse's name). Also add that if the debt is not repaid by (date) the horse will be sold at public auction. In the meantime lock up all her stuff, get it out of the barn. She may pull a midnight skulk and remove the horse. In Ontario we can do as mentioned above but if the sale of the horse exceeds the debt plus reasonable expenses the remainder must be given to the owner. I really doubt you will get your money, even thro court as I suspect she just doesn't have it. OR, have her sign the horse over to you in lieu of debt.

Saddlebag, the accused is an EX boarder and long gone.

you have a signed note. Also look up agisters lien. file that. Good luck. First thing is to send a registered letter. Do not put any notice in the paper until the lien is filed. Then I believe you can post a notice.

There is nothing there on which to PUT a lien, stevenson. Boarder, horse and tack are long gone. Agister's liens only work when the goods are still on the property.

guess you could take her to small claims court. if you want to deal with the headache and hassle, and by the time you are done with all the fees, it may not be worth it. It is a headache, and you need receipts for everything to prove cost.

I'd chalk this up to a lesson learned and just move on.

Ok so question.... IF i took her to court and IF i won, what do they usually do to get my money back? Just order her to pay it or???

The note is signed but if she claims she paid it i have no proof she didnt and she has no proof she did.... Which she hasnt.

the notes you have may mean something, if she has acknowledged that she owes you money then you may have a chance of getting it back, but its not concrete. Have you tried talking to her or seeing a mediator

My horse's feet are as swift as rolling thunder, She carries me away from all my fears, And when the world threatens to fall asunder, Her mane is there to wipe away my tears.

If she doesn't pay it then you can probably get a lien on some of her property, a horse trailer, car, or even her house. In Canada, it's the Sheriff who puts the Judgment Lien on things, so maybe try calling the Sheriff's office and ask what steps would be taken to get paid.

This is a fine example of a BO allowing a boarder to get into arrears. If the board isn't paid within 5 days, then it probably won't be and that is the time to act. Promises of payment are empty words. When a boarder gets into financial difficulties, paying the horse's board is at the bottom of the priority list.
