Equine law

Equine law is the law relevant to the equestrian industry. Equine law therefore not only includes the (cross-border) purchase and sale of horses, but related matters such as the rent, lease, purchase and sale of real estate in the equestrian sector (stud farms, stallion stations, training stables, riding stables); liability for accidents involving horses; liability of veterinarians, for example, in purchase inspections; legal disputes about ebb and flow; sponsorship agreements; and disciplinary complaints to the KNHS, the FN and the FEI.

Paul Bavelaar, LL.M. and Wolfgang Walter Horn have specialist and qualified knowledge of equine law in the Netherlands and Germany.

Paul Bavelaar is an active competition rider, a former director of the KNHS (region of Gelderland and Flevoland), a former director of the KWPN (region of Gelderland) and a former chairman of the Stichting Veilige Paardensport (Foundation for Safe Equestrian Sports), and is well versed in the equestrian industry.

Wolfgang Walter Horn was until a few years ago active as a show jumper and owner of jumping and dressage horses in Germany.
