Ten years have elapsed since the last publication of this book, necessitating a substantially revised edition of this invaluable guide to equine law for students, owners and professionals within the horse industry – and solicitors involved in cases concerning horses.
Existing subjects brought up to date include: buying and selling, lending and borrowing, negligence, import and export, riding establishments, rights of way, road traffic, veterinary surgeons, betting and gaming, and rules and disciplinary procedures of equestrian bodies.
Of special interest in this third edition are the new sections on the Hunting Act, changes in the Welfare Act, and horse passports.
Written by a practising barrister and explained in lay terms, this is an essential book for every responsible horse rider or owner, and a valuable reference for anyone outside the horse industry who needs to understand the legal pitfalls where horses are concerned.
• A comprehensive guide to equine law, indispensable to owners, professionals and lawyers alike.
• Substantially revised and updated, its reappearance is long-awaited.
• With important information clearly presented, this is an immensely useful book for all involved with horses at every level.
