Can't believe the attitudes of some people!!

I had to move my mare from the barn I was at because the BO was horrible. She never got new sawdust or cleaned the stalls, would constantly run out of grain and hay. So I would clean the stalls but would have nothing to replace the bedding with so did my best. I bought grain and hay (for 7 horses mind you!! Not including getting my own grain and hay for Lyric since she's on a limited diet). She'd constantly have the power and water shut off from not paying the bills.
There would be no water in the fields for the horses, horrible conditions in the barn. So I (along with another boarder) turned her in to the humane society.

I gave her notice and moved my mare to so far what seems like an amazing barn.

Cue the drama!

When I went to meet the hauler, the barn was locked shut, with my tack inside. I called and called and texted. Apparently my tack was "missing" and I wasn't allowed inside the property to search for it, and any tack that she did find after I left would be compensation for the boarders leaving her barn and for the stress of having the investigators out. Who by the way, will be keeping an eye on her.

So I have no tack. Admittedly it wasn't awesome tack but now I'm having to save up for replacements. I filed with the sheriff but they weren't very enthusiastic about it.

I guess learn from my mistake.. if you have to leave somewhere collect your gear before you give notice.

At a place like that, I wouldn't have even given notice. I'd pack my stuff up and leave and while I'm heading out, I would'a told the BO to shove it.

Good for you for leaving. What a nutcase that person is.

DO you not know any of the boarders who may still be there? Maybe you could ask them to bring it to you?

Is there any kind of contract involved? If not any that would affect your tack and you abided thr entire contract, exactly what LadyDreamer said, that is your property go get it.

No I can't believe the attitudes of some people, I surely can't. That is ridiculous, want me to beat her up for you?

Unfortunately no contract, and when the other boarders found out I was leaving, they left too.

Lesson learned though. :(

no conntract may be a good thing it means she cannot legally keep your tack. You didn't sign anything saying she could and (as far as I know) there was no verbal contract either and even if there was I doubt it'd hold up with the cops

Exactly, no contract means you can press charges if it comes to that..I'd go get my stuff, she has zero right to keep it.

Give her the choice to comply first. Hey, I am coming over today with Officer Jim here, or Sheriff Bob, and I am going to get my tack and equipment. If you do not let me get my stuff I will have to have Jim or Bob have a nice legal talk with you about theft of personal property. If with need to have Judge Stevens rule on the matter we can.
