Makes no sense to me. If they "owned" her they wouldn't have contacted me.. they would have just sold her.
Question - so, this is your horse, and you had it "in training" somewhere - I suppose you "board" at this trainer's facility. You "loaned" the horse to the people - were they paying the board/training fees directly to the trainer or barn owner? Was the barn owner made aware by YOU that the situation regarding use of the horse had changed? Do YOU have a contract with your "trainer"? A "well known" barn should know better than to have verbal agreements with their clientele... especially not a barn that deals in $10,000.00 horses...
Is there any other part of this story that is being left out? Were the people leasing her supposed to be paying "partial" board, and ended up paying full board because you didn't own up to your end of the deal? Something in this story isn't adding up to me... either the people are just nuts and you are making too big a deal out of something that someone who is clearly incompetent said, OR there is more to this story than is being shared... :/
Glad you ended up getting your gorgeous girl back, but your story really doesn't add up :/
