About this Book
Practical Horse Law sets out to be an accessible and readable guide to the law for horse owners and riders in situations where they might need to consider their legal position and the need for legal advice. It also suggests steps which can be taken to prevent becoming involved in litigation in the first place. Horseriding is a risk sport, horses are valuable animals, and owners and riders need to be aware of all the legal pitfalls.
It includes choosing a riding school, riding safely, whether in a school or on roads and tracks, buying, selling and loaning horses and equipment, accidents and veterinary negligence, how to make a claim and what to claim for, keeping horses at home or at livery, animal welfare and more.
