Its a very unfortunate story but as one of my bosses used to say

If it aint written down it never happened

Its so easy to get taken in by people who seem really nice and honest. You soon learn to distrust everyone

Can you afford the horse? If so, approach the girl and say you had an agreement and see if she will sign the horse back over to you. You could of course try to just buy her back, which would suck, but that's really your only options if you don't want the horse shuffled around.

DA, I believe the OP has already contacted the current owner, who has denied trying to sell the horse. So if she really is trying to get rid of the mare, she's not letting the OP know about.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

walk away, really life is too short for these childish games. Seems like all three parties involved need to grow up.

If you want the backbiter to stop contacting you, save all the emails and/or phone calls and go to the police to file a harassment report....if that's all she's doing, which sounds like it to me. If you want to find out if the girl is really trying to sell her, PM me with the ad and I will do it for you!

The horse belongs to the other person -it is their's to do with as they please and they are fully within their rights to sell or not sell the horse to anyone they want, including you.

Well then, if it ain't written down then was the horse given away or on loan? Free use of horse in exchange for care? I wonder how that would argue out in court/

IMO you just need to move on. You can not retain rights to something you gave away. If you wanted the horse should have kept it

That sounds drastic. She hasn't even asked her to not contact her
