Legal Forms, Contracts and Advice for Horse Owners

by Sue Ellen Marder, J. B. Oakes

I don't know how many times I have been asked to provide examples of contracts or forms that deal with horses. However, the matter is not so simple as just having a copy of the piece of paper someone else uses. Equine laws are not only difficult to interpret but also vary from state to state. This book is a great place to start. It contains examples of almost any kind of form necessary in the horse industry: sale, boarding, breeding, etc. and also supplies information on how to use the forms. This gives horse owners a base of knowledge and draft contracts to take to their own lawyers for review. (Description provided by Karen Rust)
