Can someone help me with legal info on fence laws?

The neighbor is utilizing the fence line that I paid for and put in to complete the 4th side to several horse pins on his property. The horses are destructive and are bowing the fencing. Can I legally have him remove the pins he has physically attached to the fence line? What are my legal rights in trying to have him remove the pins that are damaging the fence?

If your neighbor is damaging a jointly owned fence, you possibly can bring a legal action against him or her for an injunction to stop the conduct and for damages to repair the fence. I suggest that you consult with a real estate attorney regarding this approach.

The best way is to simply ask the neighbor to remove the destructive horse pins. If he or she will not, follow up with a letter asking for the removal while keeping a copy for future need and reference. If he or she will still not do so, then you need to consult with the real estate attorney about your predicament.
