Let’s be honest. When you think of riding your horse or teaching your next lesson, the last thing that enters your mind is an attorney. And that’s how it should be. But everyone has heard of someone with a horrible horse experience that might have gone much better if they had known an equine attorney to talk to about the situation.
Maybe you know someone who sold a horse on payments, with no written sales contract, and never got paid. Maybe you were at a barn that got sued because the liability release it downloaded from the Internet wasn’t valid in its state. Even worse, you might have seen a desperate plea online to help a horse that couldn’t be fed or taken care of properly because its owner died without a horse trust, and the will was tied up in probate for months.
