Hello, I have a question. Can Ya'll Help?
I do not much about horse laws, I'm trying to figure out what I should do about a recent stable.
I used to board this horse at this horse stable, where we could keep our things in a tack room such as blankets,riding boots, saddles, bridles, lead ropes..etc
The horse I boarded with the stable I was leasing and board was 150, I paid six months in advanced. I also took care of any vet or farrier needs that needed to be do every 4 weeks, The horse I was leasing I only leased him for Six months. At the end of the six months, His owner came to the stable and decided they decided to continue keeping the horse there and it was there legal responsibility to pay all his fees.
I let the horse owners continue to use my tack and that stable new it.
Well I get a call about 3 months later and it was the stable saying they have received no payment what so ever, I told them I no longer leased the horse and the told me that the owners signed a contract saying you were continuing to lease and take care of all his needs.
I told the stable that the owners have lied to them etc.
The stable said OK, they would take it up with them. I also attempted to call the owners they never called me back. Apparently, the stable was unable to contact them for another month and they put a Lien on the horse. I never got any notification because it wasn't my horse, so the stable only contacted the owners.
I lived 2 hours away and had no way of grabbing any of my things, and since I was never contacted again by the stable or owners I had no idea of this lien on the horse.
The horse stable went through and sold the horse to a different stable, and Never contacted me back about my things when I called.
I have no rights to the horse, But my saddle and tack etc.
Do I have rights to get it back?
Threw the courts?
I called the stable and they said if I contacted them again I would be sued.
