Commercial Dispute Resolution


On the one hand, horse riding has been taken up as a leisure activity by many people with no horsey background at all while, at the other end of the sport, affiliated memberships have increased. Our international teams enjoy continuing success and British sports horse breeders are slowly but surely catching up with the continent.

At the same time, horse owners and especially equestrian businesses are facing a heavier burden of regulation and legislation than ever before. Claims under the Consumer Rights Act/Sale of Goods Act and the Animals Act are numerous. The horse world has its own language and customs and disputes calls for a proper understanding of them. It demands specialist equine lawyers who can apply the law realistically and sensibly to equestrian issues and have a real grasp on the problems of the equestrian community. After a lifetime of buying, selling, owning and competing her horses, our lead partner Jill Headford has the insight required to give sound advice. She a passionate horsewoman who currently competes at Medium level with British Dressage as well as being a British Riding Clubs member and competitor.
