Just a moment as I research this.
I apologize for the delay in answering your question. I thought that I had provided the answer, and just noticed that I did not. Please accept my apologies.
In FL, the stable keeper's lien only extends to the horse, and not to the tack. If you have a contract that allows you to sell the tack, then you can do so in accordance with your contractual provisions. Otherwise, you can't hold or sell the tack for the non-payment of rent. If you don't have a provision in your boarder's agreement allowing you to do this, you should draft a provision and have it put in your agreement for the future.
I hope that helped.
