The fact that you posted they are "family friends" helps me understand why you didn't get in the BO's face straight away......but still no excuse. They need to understand, VERY clearly.....that if the other person gets hurt OR hurts your horse...THEY are liable. And-the idiot could just wind up owning the place!

I would have my horses outta there so fast.......GRRRRR I would be furious too!

Omg I would have had a FIT! Isn't there an agreement of some sort that other boarders are not to ride/touch your horse?

She's friggin lucky that wasn't me or I'd have taken her mechanical car part and walloped her right upside the head with it!

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

I would get on google maps and look for other places to keep your horse and ask some friends for temporary boarding to get your horses out of there until you could find a permanet stable to keep them at.

The ignorance of some people.

While you are on Google, look for some representation if it has to go to court becaure this can get even more ugly real fast. And as other people have stated the other girl is in the wrong. I don't know about Colorado laws, but in Illinois they have an equine law that states anyone who engages in activities that involve horses do so at their own risk, and the owner has no fault if the participant gets hurt. I'm sure if you look you can find a similar one. And get a statement from the vet/chiropractor stating the horse is in no condition to ride, just to verify to your representative/judge.

Also if anyone was present during the argument, I would get them on your side if you need someone to testify that they were riding your horse, in case she turns around and says she never even touched your horse.

I agree. If the barnowner is that unaware of what is going on in their own barn, what else is happening to your horses? That's why I don't board. They would be charging me--with assault!

I agree. I would NOT tolerate anyone messing with my horse without permission.

I see it as a possible fault of BO or BM though. Things like that don't happen in vacuum and I HARDLY believe she managed to get on other people horses all the time (and I'm sure not just your horse) without anyone seeing it. I'm really sorry you have to meet such nasty people. Tell your BO and if he/she is not going to take care of the problem just change the barn.

This made me so mad I could barely sit still to finish reading the responses. I probably would have taken that chain bit from her and beat her with it. I also would have threatened to bill her for any and all chiropractor bills for riding your horse without permission, and vet bills for any new problems, laughed at her mother and retaliated with threats of my own legal action, and THEN I would have reamed the BO a new one, because I'm assuming she/he knows what's being done for your horse, and should have DESTROYED this person as soon as she touched your horse. Give them all a piece of your mind, and find a better place.
