Annapolis Maryland Equine Law Firm
Maryland is horse country, and anyone who participates in owning, riding, or racing horses knows that it can be exhilarating. With the region’s long-standing tradition of raising horses comes a set of unique legal challenges. The Law Offices of Matthew S. Evans, III offers their diverse legal experience in equine law to help anyone that touches this distinct industry. Our team of skilled Maryland equine lawyers fully understand the complex range of legal issues that involve horses, their owners, their riders and service providers, and the land and structures in the state that keeps them sheltered.
Equine-Related Contracts in Maryland
The law takes a unique view of horses because they might, under a variety of conditions, fill the role of a piece of livestock or personal property, a vehicle, an athlete, and an investment. There are many sorts of contracts related to horses, most of which require the scrutiny of an experienced Maryland equine attorney. Some of the equine contracts and agreements that we handle for clients include:
- Purchase and Sale Agreements
- Installment Sale Agreements
- Horse Lease Agreements
- Breeding Contracts
- Boarding Agreements
- Equine Real Estate
- Equine Insurance Claims
- Liability Waivers
There are often no larger areas of equine disputes than those between horse owners and equine service providers such as boarding and training facilities. If boarding agreements aren’t clearly defined with provisions for such things as turnout, stall conditions, quality of feed, arrangements for veterinary care and shoeing, training, and possibly even breeding, intense conflicts are sure to follow.
Whether you are a horse owner, barn and training facility owner and operator, trainer, racetrack owner, horse vet, or other equine service provider, let a skilled equine attorney ensure that your contractual relationship is sound and remains free of litigation.
