OKay so to make a long story short I have been working for a trainer for two years now seven days a week. Well about three month ago she quit paying me saying she was having 'money problems'. So she owes me for three months of work. Which is over $1800. Well I just purchased a weanling from her for 3k. I have given her the first $1500 and am suppose to give the other half after this filly is registered. What I am struggling with is she owes me money for work I have done. By the way I quit working for her for obvious reasons.... So my friends are all saying to write her a letter telling her she owes me and we should just settle it by letting me take the baby without giving the other $1500. This trainer is already upset because I have asked for the money she owes me. So its very difficult to even discuss it with her because she thinks im a bad guy for asking for the money which she owes me. I think everyone has been through crap with trainers but any advice on how to handle it? Alot of my friends said to have an lawyer write her a letter. Im sure she would be scared enough from just that to let her go but I don't know. Any advice?
