Owning a horse has always been a significant investment of both time and money.

Transactions used to be done on trust, however, in today’s litigious climate it is now absolutely imperative that you make sure that you are protected should things go wrong.

We are experienced in advising owners, purchasers and trainers on the legal considerations that should be born in mind when dealing with horses.
