Suspect BO of overusing my horses
Hi everyone, I need suggestions for tracking devices that attach to my horse's halter.
Background: I have a contract with my BO stating my horses can be used 3 times a week in their lesson program, 45 mins each ride. It had come to my attention that one of my horses was used for a few hours. There is no proof of this and the people who told me have since left the barn. I confronted my BO and she denied it but later on I caught her in a lie when I found a girth rub on him, she confessed he was used once the week prior, which I have a hard time believing. Part of the deal is that I am made aware every time my horses are used. I am very suspicious but unfortunately due to my extremely demanding job I can't go out and check on them daily. I try to come at odd times ever since this came to my attention and I did catch my horses in the crossties about to be ridden twice without my knowledge. Due to how well my horses are doing (body condition wise, as well as my senior being able to interact with kids) I'm giving this BO one more chance. She has been very professional and kind throughout this whole thing and I love the barn and everyone there.
Reason I'm trying to stay here is because I have a senior who needs to be fed 4 times a day in order to keep his weight and it's incredibly difficult to find a place willing to do that for him in my area. This is our 5th barn, I really want this place to work which is why I want to try finding a gps tracking device that I can attach to a halter (they are only ridden in their halters) to collect evidence and to also bring me peace of mind in case these accusations are unfounded.
Any other suggestions on how to deal are greatly appreciated, again I would love to move but there are no other options in my area, the next step is to have them 2 hrs away from me.
