Do you honestly believe you are doing the right thing by continuing to own a horse and collecting state money at the same time? Unless you are collecting for disability, I would seriously take a good long look at your judgement.
I think what your family is doing is wrong. But I wouldn't have been put in this situation anyways. I wouldn't have tolerated anyone else riding my horse. I would have demanded a key to have access to things I own. Plus, I'm not sure how things work in the UK, but if you moved out at only 16 I am assuming that you already had family issues. With that said, I wouldn't have had the horse on the property in the first place. Again, this is only answered your original question, what would I do. Oh and if I had no other option but to live on tax payers money, I would have definitely sold my Olympic level jumping horse to pay bills and do what is right...
I hope you have learned a valuable lesson from this experience and start making better decisions with your life. I have a feeling that you will feel much better once you do.
