Equine law: livery arrangements

An outline of issues on livery yards which can have legal implications

Year of Publication2012

Problems can arise between a livery yard owner and a client. These could include, for example, financial disputes, neglect or abandonment of the horse, and injury to the horse, rider or others. Livery yards need a formal agreement between the yard owner and client to help clarify responsibilities. The yard owner and client should aim to settle any disputes amicably and out of court. However, arbitration or other legal action may be required.
