Many people in the horse industry participate as a small business, such as a riding instructor, boutique retailer, boarding and training operation or coaching business. All businesses have legal requirements to meet, and practical requirements which may raise legal issues such as safety considerations.
For example, if you are accepting horses onto your property for boarding or training, you should have a contract in place which addresses all the situations where things typically go awry in that scenario. This means that the terms are clear to all parties which reduces arguments involving the contract should a party be in breach. You will also be more confident in what to do if a sticky situation evolves. If you have lawyers that you work with regularly, they will be familiar with the terms of the contracts you use because they drafted them, and they can easily advise you should any issues arise.
