So hopefully you’re not out to find someone that can help you sue and things somehow relate to horses. However, there are many practices that provide law services and specialise in equine law. Services could be related to storm water compliance, manure management, hazardous waste contamination and land use permitting and entitlement issues.
Or perhaps advise on the purchase, sale or lease of horses and horse facilities, equine insurance, boarding disputes, breeding disputes, trainers, horse parks, horse associations, non-profit entities, tack and feed stores and other equestrian businesses, risk management, employment disputes, intellectual property protection, entity formation, and estate planning.
For someone with a law background, or who plans to go into this area or is currently studying and has a passion for horses, perhaps it would be worthwhile looking into a practice/s that already provide services in this area. It’s also not a bad idea to have a few contacts if you are setting up your own place or are leasing out/selling horses or providing another service relating to equines.
