  • The horse sale contract
    A properly drafted horse sale contract brings you the reassurance that you have done all you can to avoid frustrations or costly problems later. If you’re buying, it’s worth considering a pre-purchase veterinary examination, and obtaining warranties from the seller.

We can give you professional advice on the terms of the contract, so you know the deal is sound.
