Horse Boardin Nightmare

Okay so this is not 100% horse related nut I just want some outside thoughts on this and how you would deal.

So when I moved my horses out to the property I was then living on, I offered several times to pay board for them and was told I wouldn't have to because no one else had ever paid boarding and I was already paying house rent. So this property is owned by 3 people- 2 sisters and there mother and any rent goes into a trust for the property.
So anyway, I was thrilled I didn't have to board and moved my horses in. Then I had my accident I was in the ICU for 5 days. On day number 2, sister #1 shows up at the hospital and tells my mom she just got an offer of $200 a month to have someone board there horses (which is what i had offered and told i felt they could make from boarding) and that my mom needs to pay up if she wants the horses to stay. My mom was distraught and handed the money over because she didn't want to even think about the horses right then. She did only give her $150... Which was only for the pasture and them filling up the water trough every now and then someone was taking care of the feeding.
So several months go by and my mom continues to pay sister #1 $150 a month and who INSISTs the checks must be made out to her. Finally, my mom gets sick of giving this money and calls sister #2 to see if she can send her the check. Sister #2 was furious that a) we were being charged rent and b) that they had never been told for months.
Sister #1 is the reason i laid in the woods for 5 hours with a broken neck, for whatever reasons she would not let rescues teams in to get me out and would not give a location once rescue teams were called. So i have her the thank for the scariest 5 hours of my life and now this? Stealing from her own family? We kept our mouths shut about her actions in the woods because we wanted the horses to have a safe place while i was healing, but after this i am furious with her and i am moving my horses ASAP and really want the world to know what this woman did to me and my family. Do i have a right to be this mad? She's been very rude to me and my family sincw the accident and i just feel I've spent months being the bigger person but this is the final straw. What would any of you guys do? Also, as far as we hqve learned there was no other offer for the pasture

I'd see if you could have a chat with sister #2 and the mother about what's happened. Get everything in writing with a signed contract as to what monies are required and where they are to be sent to. I take it its a private lease and not through an estate agent?

It is private yes, but I was with Sister #1 son at the time and until recently which is how I got my 'in' and why I was living on the property with him. I want my horses of the property ASAP so I won't have to deal with her anymore and am looking for a new home for them.

Stealing from you and her own family is bad enough, but this?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if the OP had been in bad enough shape that she didn't make it before the rescue team got there wouldn't that make that sister a prime candidate for negligent homicide or something? Even so, she obviously knew the situation and purposely hindered the OP's rescue...that just screams malicious intent to me.

Personally, given what you described, I'd move both my horses and myself out ASAP.

I can't understand why no one pressed charges (or something) on the sister for interfering with your rescue or why you would want to continue to live there at all.

I never went back to the house after my accident and now live somewhere I don't have room for the horses. Getting them out is next on the list... Pressing charged against her had crossed my mind, but after everything she's done (or didn't do) I would just let the truth come out and let her try and explain her actions to everyone in town.

You and your horses need to leave there for a safer, saner environment. The next time you rent/lease make sure everything is in writing.
