California does not have a specific set of legal statutes that address the needs of the equine community. Instead the courts rely on a variety of statutes including but not limited to contract law, tort law and probate law. An attorney who is familiar with the needs of the horse community and is up to date on current equine law developments is able to better analyze equine breeding, buying, selling and management issues in a timely manner.
Parties often find themselves embroiled in litigation that is expensive, time-consuming and unpredictable simply because they entered into a transaction without a written agreement or they used a standard form agreement that allowed for ambiguity and confusion.
You and your horse are unique make sure your legal counsel is too.
