Equine law requires specialized knowledge and an understanding of an industry with its own set of issues, players, events and regulations.  

From the ownership, care, boarding, training, showing and racing of horses, we are experienced in claims ranging from negligence in boarding of horses, to fraudulent misrepresentation in the sale or lease of horses, to breaches of contract.

What We Do

Segal McCambridge attorneys have extensive knowledge of equine law, with experience representing both plaintiff and defense clients in matters including injuries to horses and riders, sale and purchase contracts, leases and boarding agreements and claims concerning professionals providing services for the care of horses.

Our understanding of equine law allows us to provide prompt and accurate guidance when handling these demanding and often sensitive issues.

Who We Serve

  • Athletes
  • Farriers
  • Horse owners
  • Trainers
  • Veterinarians

How We Do It

Combining an understanding of the material value of showing and racing horses and the emotional attachment to beloved pets, our attorneys appreciate the intrinsic value of horses to both owners and riders as well as the complexity and nuance of equine law.

As a result, we retain the best experts in various fields to assist us with the aggressive prosecution or defense of equine claims.

Our attorneys come to the table prepared to go to trial but understand that many sensitive situations are better suited for negotiation and mediation. Working closely with clients, we resolve matters in an efficient and timely manner.
