    I think the $50 is a good idea, especially because it was never discussed or agreed on and is simply a polite gesture.

    Other than that, you don't owe her anything. I wouldn't be concerned about anything she says that's negative against you. Actions speak louder than words. I'm guessing she has a reputation for being the way she is, and most people likely will just ignore her ravings.

    I'd give her the $50 for the time the horse was over at her place - a good faith gesture and tell her no on the rest.

    If she persists tell her you had no idea she held 50% share in the horse this whole time but if she did you will gladly pay that amount as long as she is willing to pay 50% of the care from the time you took ownership of the horse. Fair is fair, right?

    I'd give her the $50, but besides that, you don't even owe her a bag of dirt.

    You could always say, then how about paying half my bills for your half of the profits??

    I agree with livelaughloveride.

    She wants half the profit, but didn't pay half the upkeep? I would tell her where to stick it.

    If she is that much of a problem causer enough people will be wise to her antics, and if they aren't they will either learn or they aren't worth having around.

    Pay her the 50 and never do dealings again. But, learn a lesson too. They say never look a gift horse in the mouth, but just get a contract written up for peace of mind with all future horses.

    Very sorry you have been through this, but chin up and carry on! People like that dig their own graves.

    You owe her nothing. Without a written contract stating that you would give her half of the sale money, her argument would not hold up in a court of law. Even if she happened to have slipped it into a conversation, and you just forgot about it, there's still nothing that she could do. Everything HAS to be written down, or it's all gibberish.

    I agree with another poster- make up a contract for future occasions. My cousin decided to take a free horse from a woman, to have it retrained by a friend, then resell. She made the woman sign a contract before they even touched the horse, stating that the horse was legally my cousin's after that point, and that every decision made about that horse was hers to make, and hers alone. It started as just a precaution, but the horse was spoiled, and they had to discipline it before they got off the place. It flipped out, reared up and fell over on itself, but thankfully didn't get hurt. It acted very respectful afterwards, and listened to everything they asked of it. The woman freaked out, called the police and told them they were "abusing her horse." Once the police saw the contract, and heard the story from my cousin (who is a vet, and does NOT abuse animals), they told the woman that she no longer had control over the horse. It was a quick end to what could have been a long legal battle. My cousin probably would have won the legal battle, but it would have been tedious, time consuming, and costly.
    It's sad that we live in a world where we can't trust anyone anymore, but it's best to be protected.

    After this I am going to be getting everything in writing. :)
