What Is an Equine Lawyer?

The equine industry includes businesses beyond those who deal directly with horses. This covers a lot of ground—breeding, boarding, riding lessons, event planning, veterinary care—and a variety of legal issues and needs can arise. Equine legal matters cover just as much ground. Equine lawyers serve horse lovers and horse industry businesses and individuals in equine law as well as several other areas of law, such as these:

  • Breeding and boarding contracts

  • Liability risk management

  • Real estate matters

  • Business formation

  • Tax planning

  • Personal injury

Horse industry businesses and individual owners, boarders, riders, and trainers need counsel they can rely on to understand the types of problems that can arise in this area, how they differ from similar problems in other industries, and how the law approaches equine legal issues. With connections in the horse world, the Jenkins Fenstermaker equine legal team is the go-to equine legal resource.

Leading the Jenkins Fenstermaker equine legal team is Allison J. Farrell, accomplished attorney and lifelong horse enthusiast. Her passion for horses began in childhood, when she would ride her bike to the nearest stables on the outskirts of Buffalo, New York to offer her “services” mucking out stalls in return for riding privileges. As an adult, she channels her continuing enthusiasm for all things horses into growing her equine legal practice, managing a farm with her husband in central West Virginia, and riding her beloved horses in her free time.
