Apologies for not getting back to you sooner, I experienced some temporary connection issues and could not get back on the site until now. All appears to be resolved now so I can continue dealing with your query.
There is no law which says the horse will legally become hers after 28 days. In terms of her claiming livery fees, this would depend on what you had agreed in advance. You do not need a formal livery agreement for such fees to apply, as long as you had agreed somehow that you would pay her such fees or at least consider them. If nothing at all was mentioned about fees, there is still a potential that she may be able to charge you for ‘reasonable fees’ unless it was clearly agreed that nothing will be charged or that she did not expect anything from you.
In the end, in the absence of a clear agreement that she was not going to charge you, you may have to pay her something but it would inly be what would be considered reasonable in the circumstances and not necessarily what she is after. In any event, the horse would not belong to her after 28 days, she cannot just claim ownership like that, especially if there is an ongoing dispute in the background relating to it.
