Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be glad to assist you,
You should not sign any papers transferring the horse to this individual and you should not give her the horse unless she is willing to simultaneously give you "in hand" a "Release of Lien" in recordable form, i.e., she must give you an fully executed Release of Lien with her signature notarized. At the time she literally hands you the Release of Lien, only then should you physically give her the horse.
If you give her the horse without the Release of Lien, you will have lost your bargaining chip and she can make additional demands on you before giving you the Release of Lien. I am not saying that she will do this, but I have seen this happen where one party is acting in good faith, but the other party has other demands on their mind which they have not yet voiced. Therefore, the only way to avoid this is to do a simultaneous transfer - She gives you the Release of Lien and you give her the horse,
