Montgomery County Pennsylvania Horse Boarding Contract Attorney

Kimberly H. Ashbach, Esq.

If you're wondering where Mr. Ed went, chances are he now grazes somewhere else because his owner did not bother to get a horse boarding contract in writing.

In the world of horses and equestrians, so-called "gentlemen's agreements" concerning matters such as horse breeding and boarding contracts are not uncommon. And while these "agreements" may be nice—in no way do they represent good business sense.

Horse owners are rich traditionalists. There has always been an unspoken understanding that horse owners are "a different breed," and that they could do business "on the honor of a handshake." These agreements date back to a time when the purchase of the horse could be had for incidental funds. Times have changed, and horses, although mainly purchased for our "hobby," require the outlay of thousands, if not tens of thousands of dollars at a minimum. And unfortunately, many people find that honor is nowhere to be found when a dispute or problem crops up.

As a lawyer, and horse owner for more than thirty years, I have an insider's view to the unique world of equine sports. Horse ownership involves an investment in a major asset. Those who own horses know the amount of money at stake, but are often shy about protecting their investments in these marvelous animals. Reluctance to address these issues proactively is the biggest liability of all.

I can help you to understand the law and develop a plan to protect your animal and your investment through the use of carefully drafted contracts and comprehensive insurance and liability coverage.

I represent clients in a myriad of equine legal issues in the Philadelphia Metro area and throughout the east-central Pennsylvania region. If you are in need of an equine law attorney in these areas, I can assist you with services such as:

  • Breeding rights contracts
  • Buy-sell agreements
  • Leasing contracts
  • Insurance issues
  • Liability issues

We really can't say enough about Kim. She took on our case when even the 'big' law firms in Philadelphia were reluctant, as our legal problem was very unique and many lawyers hadn't really ever heard of what we were trying to accomplish... However, due to Kim's extremely competent, professional and tenacious manner, it wasn't long before we saw our matter resolved to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend her as an attorney. Thank you, Kim, for a great job. You made a tremendous difference in two people's lives!
