Painted, I understand where you're coming from. When I was your age I'd rather avoid a conflict if I could, but I'd jump in with both feet if people continued to press.
If she asks to use it again, just tell her no. ' No' really is a complete sentence. You don't need to offer any explanations or excuses. It's your saddle, after all. Telling someone no is very empowering, and will give you the ability to continue to say it.
This girl abused your trust and didn't respect your property. She doesn't deserve to use your equipment. I recently had someone I trust ask to borrow my horse trailer. I said yes. When they asked to borrow my truck to haul it with, I said no so fast it broke the sound barrier. I don't lend my truck, period.
You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!
