CCE Equine Presents A Horse Owner’s Guide to Equine Law

Aug 16, 2013

On Tuesday, August 27th 2013, from 6:30-8:30 PM, CCE Equine will host “A Horse Owner’s Guide to Equine Law.”

Liability of horse and farm owners, equine purchase agreements, bills of sale, stable keeper’s liens, boarding contracts and issues are only the beginning of what a horse owner needs to know about equine law. Attorney and horse owner, James T. Towne, Jr. will cover these topics and more to provide you with the equine law overview you need to make sure you and your farm are protected.

Horse owners and professionals cannot afford to be uniformed about equine law. Equestrian sports have a higher risk factor than many other sports. The practical duties of keeping both the horses and riders safe, places a heavy responsibility your shoulders.

Attorney James Towne, Jr. will cover topics such as:

  • Understanding inherent risk law (or lack thereof)
  • Liability waivers/releases
  • Case studies/examples
  • Equipment and helmet laws
  • Contracts, boarding & purchase agreements
