Glad it worked out for you! I'm pretty sure even if it didn't you still would have been okay. Where I'm from, as long as you do not state that you guarantee the horse to be 100% sound you are selling it "as is".

When riding my horse I no longer have my heart in my chest, but between my knees.

Next time you sell a horse either disclose everything you know about the horse's medical history in writing or make the buyer sign an "as-is" bill of sale.

alot of your questions are gonna depend on your local laws, your profession and how you present yourself. In Va, someone that is or presents themselves to be a horse professional has greater disclosure obligations than a lay person. However reading between the lines there seems to be a specific attempt to defraud going on. If the new buyer can document you hid know medical issues thats not just you not being a professional thats purpoosefully hiding stuff. She might have a case against you.
Buyer beware horse laws generally only cover non professional sellers who honestly dont know something and sell something as is. I dont think that is what happened here.

Doesn't matter if he was dead lame. The onus was on her to have a pre purchase exam done.

Or don't disclose anything and sell 'as is'. It's on the buyer if they don't do a PPE.
