With a strong reputation in the land and agricultural sector, it’s only natural that we have a close affinity with the equine world.
Many agricultural holdings and estates have or are considering some form of equine activity, often as part of their business diversification strategy. But it’s not always as simple as renovating a few farm buildings or allocating an area for the activity to take place. Landowners need to take into account how any developments could affect other parts of their business, their tax position and any subsidies they may receive.
How we can help you
- the implications for subsidy claims of letting land for horses
- planning issues around stabling and riding centres
- employment law issues
- negligence claims and disputes
- tax implications of using land for commercial purposes
- the purchase and sale of equestrian businesses
We also have the ability to help with the day-to-day issues in relation to running an equine business including:
- grazing and livery agreements
- personal injury claims for riding accidents
- horse sale and purchase agreements
- loan agreements
- debt recovery for livery fees
- contract disputes
