Offer to buy her back. Don't lie and try to get around the fact you gave the horse away. Your word should be good and you should have enough respect for yourself not to be deceitful. So if they don't want to give her back off them cash... money usually talks pretty loudly :)

Was the mare in foal when you gave her to them?

Ha fully JDI so would I!!! Possession is 9/10ths of the law in Australia dunno about over there. I know coz a lady gave me my qh x mare who was a mess and she was bad with her. 2yrs later she tried to get her back when she saw how dead quiet she is now and even stooped so low as trying to report her as stolen. To which the police said to her you made a verbal agreement with her (me) so we cannot do anything. If you try to take the mare back the new owner (me) can have you charged for theft!! So I told her to go shove it practically. Seeing as when I got her I couldn't tie float load saddle catch trim hooves or even pick up her feet and three years later (now) she is the most highly trained NH horse I have and am happily excited for her first foal next year :))))). In your case I wish possession wasnt all that matters coz your situation is reversed to me the new owner is the bad one an you are the good one. I would suggest offering to buy her back at the cost of all the cost and care it has cost your "friend" so far with her and I hope you succeed :)
