Blog - Case of the Month

June 2021
NAES Favorites


December 2012  used for June 2021

A young rider took a tumble during a jumping lesson at a stable in the East. She suffered a broken leg and collar bone; certainly not life-threatening but serious never the less.

The rider’s step-father had signed a release although he had not yet received legal guardianship. He thought that signing the release would absolve him and his wife from any legal action plus the stable owner would be protected as well at least that’s what the stable owner hoped.

The accident came back to haunt the stable owner when the young rider’s attorney showed that the signed waiver was worthless since the step father was not the legal guardian at the time of the accident and could not sign away the legal rights of the minor aged rider anyway.

The stable owner’s insurance company had to pay a hefty sum to the former student. The lesson learned is to always have your attorney review your legal standing when there’s a divorce involved so you’re not caught not being a legal guardian at the time of the step-child’s accident.

Proving again that the truth is stranger than fiction...
I pick out a specific case from the hundreds that I have worked on in the past years and give you a brief rendition of the facts and outcome. And, I may cover 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.

NAES - Ethics

June 2021

Q.
Our daughter has leased a horse for two years. In the lease contract under care it states she is responsible for all veterinary and farrier expenses. It does not mention anywhere that she has to inform the owners of any medical treatment or injures incurred.

Last week she was involved in a vehicle accident pulling a horse trailer with the leased horse. The horse had minor injuries however needed stitches on his left flank. And, he has developed a dislike for loading.

Is she obligated to tell them?
