Whatever type of equine agreement you are considering entering into it is always sensible to have that agreement set out in writing. From a practical point of view this helps to ensure that both parties have the same understanding as to what has been agreed.
Disputes may also be avoided later if the parties are clear on their respective rights and obligations from the start.
Verbal contracts are notoriously difficult to prove and written contracts have the advantage of being easier to rely on and enforce if things do go wrong.
