This is a comprehensive livery agreement for yard owners providing "do-it-yourself" (DIY) livery services to horse owners, where the yard owner provides a loose box, and basic facilities, but the horse owner feeds, exercises and generally cares for the horse. The agreement sets out your reduced responsibility for the horse or pony while it is on your property, details and prices of services (including additional services the owner may choose to buy from you), and of course details of the horse or pony.
This is an agreement for use primarily by any stallion owner as his standard terms, setting out clearly the mare information and warranties he needs, and terms for reservation, attendance, payment, certification, live foal guarantee. It is suitable for the owner of any pony, sport horse or special breed stallion. Although drawn primarily to protect a stallion owner, this agreement sets out matters important to the mare owner as well. It is likely to be acceptable to both parties without much editing.
This agreement is a simple way to protect yourself as a buyer of a horse or pony. It is very hard to ascertain whether a horse has any problems or vices at a viewing, even when a vet has assessed the horse's medical condition. By using this sale agreement, you obtain the seller's promise (warranty) that there are no undisclosed problems. If there subsequently turn out to be, then it is the seller who becomes responsible for them, not you. Using this document could not only save you thousands of rands but also much anguish over dealing with a horse that you cannot ride.
This is a version of our horse sale agreement tailored for sellers rather than buyers. When buying a horse or pony, the buyer takes most risk in whether the horse is sound. A sale agreement therefore usually re balances the risk back to the seller. This version is slightly different in that it protects the buyer slightly less and includes provisions that favour the seller rather than the buyer. If you are the seller, you are more likely to be better off presenting your own terms, rather than accepting those of the buyer.
This horse sale contract gives the buyer a great deal of protection if the horse is medically unsound or if the condition is not as the seller described. It is impossible to test everything that might be wrong at a viewing - your new horse might behave perfectly in the seller's arena, but might be impossible to handle at events. This agreement won't prevent those problems, but it will ensure you can seek compensation. If there is a lot at stake (financial or otherwise), a comprehensive agreement like this one is a must.
This is a comprehensive horse training agreement that includes provision for livery and the option of rider training. Although drawn for professional trainers who are likely to offer remedial training, lessons to the owner and competition experience, it could also be used by someone breaking a friend's horse as a one-off favour. Using this agreement should help prevent disputes arising as a result of mismatched or unreasonable expectations as to the service offered.
Many shared ownership arrangements break down because of arguments over how much each person contributes (either in money or time), who is responsible for a certain aspect of care (such as arranging for the horse to be shod) or when the horse can be ridden. Recording the arrangement in a written agreement like this one may seem overly formal, particularly between friends, but it can prevent and resolve arguments and upsets. This easy to edit horse share agreement is full of practical matters, some of which might have been overlooked without it.
This is a shared ownership agreement for a sport horse, where one of the owners is a competition rider, and the other a financial backer. This document records the arrangement and the obligations of each owner to the other and to the care of the horse.
This document template covers both the lease of a horse for eventing or jumping or a pony for showing. It is a comprehensive, flexible document for both long and short term periods. The document primarily protects the interest of the owner but fairly treats the borrower.
