Equine ownership disputes can arise for a number of reasons, including the wrong sum of money being paid during transfer of ownership, a leased horse not being returned to its owner, arguments over the terms for joint ownership or a poorly drafted contract.
While written agreements and other documents, such as the horse’s passport and freezemark paperwork, can be referred to in cases of ownership disputes, things are not always so clear cut.
For example, the necessary documents may have been temporarily handed over during a loan agreement, only to be retained by the other side, or the contract may be poorly drafted, resulting in confusion between the parties.
Therefore, if you are facing such a dispute, it is vital to seek advice from a specialist solicitor with a thorough understanding of equine ownership disputes, such as the team at Pearson Rowe.
