Blog - Case of the Month
Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I’ll be picking out a specific case out of the hundreds I’ve worked on in the past years and give you a brief rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover pertinent equine related topics.

Taking advantage of situations that have occurred to others may lead you to say things to yourself like, “Boy I’m glad that didn’t happen to me!” Anyway, for sheer entertainment value, you’ll like them.

After reading the Blog, please feel free to call or e-mail with any questions or comments. Although I will not be taking comments on this blog, your feedback is welcomed. Archived Blogs available at this link.

NAES BLOG - June 2018...


48 states have Equine Liability Statutes. Only California and Maryland do not have liability statutes aimed specifically for horses.

The era of these somewhat protective liability statutes began around 1994. That first year I recall receiving numerous calls from attorneys and insurance companies asking whether or not the case they had would fall under the statutes. For the most part, the statutes are not a panacea for the horse professional. However, the new laws would often slow a horse owner or rider from filing a law suit.

The very important item to remember, is to not feel you, as the horse professional is protected if you’ve screwed up in some sort of your horse responsibilities. Most state statutes will not absolve you from responsibility for areas of gross negligence or willful misconduct. In fact, I would suggest you schedule an appointment with your personal or business attorney with an eye towards making your business and home as immune as possible from any kind of legal action. You definitely do not want something sneaking out of the weeds to upset your life. Prior to the meeting create a list of considerations, and be as specific as possible.

Obviously your home, automobiles, business interests and anything of value must be considered because I can assure you the attorney filing the action against you sure will.

Please let me know if you have even the smallest question.
