Help! Stable is trying to steal my horse!
 
long story short, my horse is literally being padlocked in a stall to keep me from getting him. She had been informed I would bringing my horses home this month as I was planning on getting my fixed fixed and then she informed me she was keeping one of my horses.

The stable is claiming I owe the 10,000 in back boarding fees/training for a time period my horse wasn't even on her property and for training I never hired her for.

There is a lot to the story I won't go into here, including financial reasons she is trying to steal my horse.

I have receipts showing I have paid my bill every month during the time my horse was at her property and I have documents showing me as owner.

I have been told of a statute in the state of Kansas that does not allow for a stable to keep your horse hostage for ransom, even if you owe them money and have a lien on it, but I can't find it. Does anyone know what it is?

I filed a law suit today to get him back, but I would like to know the statute if possible as it will help me faster than the court.

She gave me my other horse that she doesn't like, she doesn't like arabs and he is arab, she paid me for a horse trailer that she bought from me after the time period she claims I owe her money for. (I had to ask for the money after 2 years of non-payment. If I owed her 10,000 for past board, why would she have paid me or gave me my other horse?)

Anyway, does anyone know of the statute I am talking about?

I do not know of one, but I would keep as calm as humanly possible, and consult a really good attorney to help you through this hump - Do not let your emotions get the best of you, (it seems like you're keeping a good head in this), and eventually you can smoothly, and of course legally get your horse out of there and home. Something seems a little "fishy" about this BO, and she'll not win in the long run. Get out a note book and document dates/conversations/events/etc. just for a back-up. I think you'll be fine, and have your horse home soon! Best of luck!! :)

i would suggest a lawyer. at least go into an office and see if somebody can give you advice, and guide you in the right direction to get your horse back while you sort through the legal mess. they would probably know about the statute.

I had someone try that to me once .. but they parked a tractor in front of his stall. While they were at church, we drove up, hooked the truck to the front end of the tractor and snatched it far enough from the stall to get my horse out. Left her a "nice" note and never heard from her again.

I don't recommend this, but I DO understand the frustration .....

Police told me.about statute but couldn't remember he number. They said it is one of those civil statutes that they can't enforce but the court will.

$10,000 is ridiculous, who lets someone run up a board of ten grand? Sorry, don't know anything about your laws in the states.

plus having a padlocked stall?? what happens if theres a fire? or with the tractor....what were they gonna do, either let the horse die or take the time to run, grab the keys, and get the horse???

honestly...at least imo...when people go about it this way, trying to hold something instead of going to somebody with authority (like a court) then theyre probably pretty shady...why wouldnt you just go to court for it...why hold a horse and say pay me or you dont get it....make the judge tell em that....shady shady

jeesh. i hope it all works out for you.
