I was wondering if anyone was familiar with the law on this issue. A horse's owner pays the board but never comes out to see the horse. The horse is stuck in the stall without any turn out or grooming. From what I understand from other boarders, the owner refuses any offers of help and threatens to sue anyone who goes into her horse's stall to groom, pick hooves, or do anything for the horse. I understand that taking the horse out of the stall without permission may be going too far but would suing someone for just going into the stall without permission be considered a frivolous lawsuit or a real case?
I was wondering if anyone knows of the extent of the liability to the person who goes into the stall without permission to groom the horse? Can the owner really sue the person and how much could they be sued for if no harm comes to the horse?
Thank you in advance for any information.
