What is your protection when you give a horse away ?
Or for the rider given a free horse and can’t believe their luck?
How can it be proved who is the legal owner?
Why does this even matter?
Most equestrians would never believe they could be ripped off.
But over a horse's 30 + years of life, it gets bought, sold, leased, loaned, claimed back, retired, re-purposed, and then given away again.
Who knows what the legalities were in those arrangements?
Did you buy from a legitimate seller?
There are always special reasons behind why a horse is being leased out.
Kept for the next child, or for when time allows for riding?
Or wanting to be the forever home for a loved horse needing stepping back but not full retirement?
Lets assess the lease risks so that the arrangement stays harmonious . . .
