Rural Property & Countryside Matters

Equine disputes

Landowners that look after horses or equestrian businesses are facing a heavier burden of regulation and legislation than ever before.  The horse world has its own language and customs and disputes call for a proper understanding of them. It demands specialist equine lawyers who can apply the law realistically and sensibly to equestrian, rural property and countryside issues and have a real grasp on the problems of the equestrian community.  

We advise on

  • buying, selling and loaning horses
  • employment of grooms
  • health and safety
  • horse insurance
  • intellectual property
  • liability under the Animals Act 1971
  • livery and grazing agreements
  • horseboxes and trailers
