Horse sale advice!!urgent

I need everyones opinion on this. I gave my horses away to a farm who said they would use her for their kids. Our agreement was that he was to keep her and if he wanted to get rid of her I have first right of refusual. Keep in mind I gave him the mare, no cost. So I find out recently that he is sending her away and will not be able to help me keep a tab on her so I know her whereabouts. He tells me if I want her back I must pay him for board and training for the time she had been there. But I disagree, I never told them to put her in training and we never signed any sort of agreement. This mare is so special to me, and I think that if I don't buy her back, she will be sent off and I will not be able to make sure she is safe. Let me know what you all think! Thanks a lot!

Do you have it in writing? Or did you get it figured out?

Oops. Nevermind, now I see the part about not signing anything

That is a rough spot to be in but if there is no paper work there is nothing you can do. If you were to try to get her back by higher means it wouldn't get anywhere as it would fall back on the lack of paper work. Simply taking the horse back and tell him your piece of mind might work to since he has no paper work on his end to prove anything either but those are your cards to play. I would be cautious in case this guy decides to take you to court since technically (tho there are no papers) you gave him the horse. I'm on his side on this one.

He plans to have the horse back after it is trained? Maybe he can give you the name and number of the trainer and you can do some research. That might change how you feel.

No I gave her to him with the intentions of him keeping her for his children to ride around on. Now he says he is sending her to nor cal to his sons ranch. Im assuming that he is giving her to his son, but wont give her back to me unless I pay? That's where I don't get it.

I think the guy figures that he has put riding time in her and wants to get something out of it. Since you never did any paper work I don't think there is anything you really can do. Maybe if you talk to him you will be able to get updates and what not about the horse.

Its sad for you, but at the same time things and circumstances change. Maybe no one is really using her at his place, maybe his son has a need for her. It doesn't seem fair to ask you to pay for her and you were supposed to have "dibs" on her if he gave her up. But w/o paperwork you have no recourse. I would ask him more about why she is going to his sons and what they plan to do with her. Can you maybe get an occasional email update with a picture? If you gave her away you must have had a reason. Good luck!

Oh dear... This is why you always need somethin in writing... Its not very fair but you really don't have any legal standing.

I guess just explain to him your situation, and ask wether he would be willing to give you his son's contact so you could talk to him about her progress/wellbeing?
