HCR Law Events


Our specialist equine solicitors are widely regarded as trusted experts in equine law, with experience spanning more than 15 years, advising on legal matters that affect the ownership of horses and the associated services provided. We work with horse owners, equine professionals, livery-yard owners and veterinary practices, providing services ranging from drafting agreements to resolving disputes and pursuing negligence claims.

Trusted by elite equestrians

We are proud official legal partners to British Dressage, as well as being headline sponsors of their annual National Convention. In this capacity, our first-class team of equine-law experts provide full legal support to members by way of a free helpline, along with discounted and preferential rates for our professional services.

We have long-standing relationships with highly regarded professionals within the industry – including veterinarians and horse-sales specialists – and we call upon this expertise to assemble the best possible team and access the most relevant, up-to-date advice on behalf of our clients.
