Horse Law

HORSE LAW | Definition

The term "equine law" covers all disputes that have a connection to horses. This is not a classic legal field that can be demarcated. Rather, there are links to a wide variety of legal areas 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). In addition, the drafting of contracts, such as purchase, leasing, riding, brokerage or hiring contracts, represents a large area in so-called equine law.
