    All the barns I've been at have required the owner of the horse to personally hand written permission for said person to ride owners horse to the BO, and/or the trainer, so that there are no he said she said arguments about horses being ridden by people who aren't supposed to be getting them out. Someone once got out my Thoroughbred, things were moved around, and she was upset next time I went out to see her, fortunately we all had individual tack sheds, so no one could use my tack, but I was never able to prove who did it. Please keep us updated, and let us know what happens. I would hope that they pay for the damage to the saddle, and the training its going to take to get your horse back up to her previous level. I would also move her as soon as possible, before something worse happens.

    I had a BO slip up and tell me that her daughter was riding my horse without my permission. My first suggestion would be to look for a place to move your horse. The next is take PICTURES and video. Go to the clinic and try to capture her riding your horse on film. Nothing better for evidence. Take some pics of your saddle too. Then confront both of them with the evidence.

    People ride my horse when I'm not at my barn too, I understand how frustrating it is. But I can't ever catch them in the act. I'm told by neighbors.

    If you can prove that the bo is letting someone ride your horse I would be spreading the word so no one else will board there

    Wow. WOW. Wow. I'd be PO'd, to say the least, AND I'd be showing up with a trailer, a bill for the saddle repair and a video camera. It might also be helpful to have a pre-written contract drawn up where the rider and BO acknowledge that they owe you x-amount for the past use of your horse. I don't think you can really prove the "untraining"... however, you can add that in as part of the cost of the so-called stolen back-usage (or whatever you want to call it). As a BO, I have permission from many people at our farm to ride thier horses at my leisure, but even still - if I have the time or the need for whatever reason to use someone else's horse (even with previously given "general, whenever you want" permission), I call and ask for the specific time and purpose that I plan to utilize the horse. It is just common courtesy and respect.

    UPDATE ASAP, please :( I hope you get there and you are all worked up over nothing, and the woman just liked to shampoo manes and tails and your horse was the lucky recipient that day? Although it doesn't sound very likely... Good luck.

    Any barn I worked at, it was never okay to use someone else's things, much less their horse. I am so sorry this has happened to you.

    The gall of some people just floors me. What would they do if your horse, or any others, as I bet more than yours are being used too, were injured, or killed? How would they explain that?

    You should look into whatever complaints you can make regarding her, and possibly theft, or misappropriation would work? Unauthorized usage might too.

    Just wrong, and I hope BO ends up with an empty stable. She has nor moral center at all.
