I own a small livery yard. Unfortunately I’ve had to give notice to one of my liveries because, despite being asked on numerous occasions, she’s not looking after her two ponies. She comes two or three times each week, looks over the fence to check they’re upright and leaves. She has to be reminded to get the farrier and, although the ponies are in good health, this is only because other people on the yard look after them. We have no contractual agreement, but I have written to her clearly stating why she has to leave and giving her notice, but I have not had any communication with her since. What can I do if she ignores my request to leave? I can’t just turn the ponies out on the street.
