Frequently Asked Questions
1) Am I able to call for a brief introductory chat to see if I have a case to pursue?
mosshaselhurst solicitors can help. We will be very happy to talk to you about your potential equine legal issue and would then be able to provide a guide as to what you could do next. This telephone consultation is free of all charge and would take no more than half an hour.
2) I bought a horse recently and took the time to have it vetted. It transpires that the horse is lame. Am I able to take action against the vet?
mosshaselhurst will be happy to discuss the position and of course the recommended action that we would advise will be influenced by how long you have owned the horse and the conditions in which you have stabled it. We will also need to discuss how you have ridden the horse and for what purpose (ie pleasure, hunting, showing, racing etc)
3) I use my horse in events and find that I have been called to a hearing after an examination of my horse has found traces of a banned substance. Can you help me?
We would be happy to help. At mosshaselhurst we have many years experience in client representation in both the magistrates and crown courts.

5) A child rider fell from her mount that resulted in an injury. This happened whilst competing at an event that we were responsible for. The parents of the child are now pursuing legal action. Are you able to help with this?
