The term "equine law" covers all disputes that have a connection to horses. This is not a classical legal field. Rather, there are links to a wide variety of legal fields such as the law of obligations (e.g. warranty disputes when buying a horse) or tort law (e.g. claims for damages after accidents with horses, up to and including veterinary liability). The drafting of contracts, such as purchase, leasing, riding, brokerage or hiring contracts, also represents a large area in so-called equine law.
