    When you calculate damages, make sure you include a value on the time you are spending nursing him back and the value of the time he is unrideable while he recovers.

    I'll second the spare bridle and nylon spare halter (because after they've broken the leather one, you need the spare to hold up!). A trailer-aid and paver bricks or wood to block the other...

    I agree with those who say call and ask what the charges are for. If you haven't paid the last bill, don't pay until you have the conversation. If you've already paid, it's water under the bridge...
