Have an ironclad contract drawn up which also stipulates the value of the horse. If they are looking after all her care, board, vet, farrier, etc. why not consider a free lease. You get to approve where she would be kept. If she disappears, sold, given away, they will be responsible for paying you for the horse. Talk to a lawyer and find out if the courts would even honor such a contract. In Canada, if the horse is taken out of province, the police say it's a civil offence, yet a civil lawyer will say it's a criminal offence which gets the owner nowhere.
