    The OP has a written contract saying she has 75% ownership. She decides. The 25% share does not overrule her decision.

    You have done so much for this horse - you have been there for him day after day. Nothing to feel guilty about. Very big hugs.

    If this can only end one way, I would say please don't wait until he...

    No you don't.

    Regardless, it's doubtful they would pursue you legally. You can do pretty much as you wish. :)

    But you have the rights here.




    That ship has sailed - it's her job to...

    75% > 25%

    You have enough ownership to leave. Load and go. As far as you can.

    Nothing is going to happen to you if you go today with the horse, other than a lot of upset phone calls. You own...

    What does your long-term future look like, re moving? Do you think you will be moving again someday? It might be something to develop a philosophy about that will help you down the road.

    The longer the BO/BM allow this to go on, the worse it is likely to get. Aside from the BM's reluctance, how does the BO feel about the risk? If the BO were more fully informed, would he/she be the...

    I know an actual owner of an Eventing Barn who opened a mobile tack shop and decided NOT to sell to the eventing market because ... they never replace anything if they have duct tape. For real. :D

    Sometimes it most definitely is the physical environment that keeps a horse constantly on edge.

    It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the barn or the care. It means there is something that...

    The AEC's are not in the east ... and not likely to EVER be in the east ... for one reason :

    The eastern eventing area organizers won't allow it.

    IMO:

    Before we can answer this or many of the other questions ... First we must figure out "what is eventing, in this modern age"? Not 50 or 60 years ago - TODAY, as it is now.
