Lease dilemma(kinda)

OK let me know if this doesnt make sense!
So one of my horses Michon is on free lease to a girl i know from riding years. He is boarded about 15minutes from my college residence and i go see him anout once a week to ride i also do the odd show on him if there near which suits the girl T fine.
However Michons new yard is where his old owner still visits(she does not work, have a horse or any connection to this yard she just used to board here) as her friends still board here she comes visiting.
So today on FB her friend added me and i was looking through her pictures in really random albums and i found a picture of the old owner and my horse taken when he moved to the new yard. there were several where she had taken him on a lead walk down onto a country road.
Now my agreement with T was that only me her and the BO touched him and had anything to do wit him she is up 7 days a week after school so no neeed for anyone else to handle him. i made this agreement as i didnt know anyone in this yard and the fact that i didnt want random people doing whatever with my horse i explained all this to all parties and it was fine.

now nobody new she had taken out my horse T definitely didnt and i really get on with the BO so i dont feel he would lie if asked. so i text her saying i saw photos but i dont want you handleing my horse and going into the stable to take him on walks he is not yours please leave him alone.

She responed with thats stupid she just about gets why she cant ride him but saying she can have nothing to do with him ir deal with him on the ground etc is just over reacting and if it was anyone else i wouldnt care.

I followed up with god forbid he spooked as she took him out on a walk and injured himself she wouldnt be paying for vet fees it would be me and T she has no right to enter the stable and remove my horse when told on his arrival she was not to go near him ( this not being allowed near him was due to past issues i have had with her)

she said she doesnt care anyway

this went on and on for a bit but then she didnt reply. i now am paranoid as to what else she has done with him when no body was around?
Was i right to react the way i did?
Should anything different had been done?
What should i do now?

Thanks in advance

I would have done the same thing! Hes your horse and she has no right to do anything with him with out your permission! If you can have someone make sure she doesn't take him out again if you haven't given her permission!

Horses may be cookies to the soul - but ponies are Ben & Jerry! ;)

You are right, and I would be livid if I were you.

I would talk to the barn manager and make sure they put a stop to this.

I have told the BO and BM however thats all that works there as it is a small livery barn so when they go anywhere technically i can ride anybody but i dont go near them and she can do the same as just the car gate is locked not the passageway.

I don not want to have to remove my boy from T as they are doing great however i am constantly paranoid about what she is going to do
