I think you need to listen to what your heart tells you.
I am terribly sorry for the loss of your horse, it is so difficult, devistating and heartbreaking thing to have to go through. I almost lost my beloved in January, and I can understand how tortureous this situation is.
The ultimate decision is yours, you have the right to either tell her, or not tell her. You could go either way. The horse no longer belonged to her. She chose to sell him, so therefore all rights to him, transferred to you and your Mother.
If I sold my horse, and he or she passed away, I probobly wouldn't want to know. I'd want to think that he/she was happy out in some pasture being loved and adored and doted on.
I know I am not that much help, and I am sorry for your loss and your situation - but I cannot make that decision for you.
I say, if your Mother and your Coach thinks that the owner should know, then they can go ahead and send the message themselves.
