Ever been duped over the sale or purchase of a horse?

A free web seminar in mid-October will look at how people can avoid sales fraud when selling a horse and explore the legal issues involved.

Many people still believe that the old rule of buyer beware holds true for every transaction, including horse sales.

However, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, buyers can have several potential legal rights with respect to horse sales, and sellers need to be aware of them.

The American horse industry has seen lawsuits involving horse sales.

The webcast will discuss in an understandable and down to earth way the legal rights of sellers and buyers in a horse sale transaction.

The online seminar, organised by My Horse University and eXtension Horses, which are part of Michigan State University, will be held on Tuesday, October 14, at 7pm EDT. Those interested are encouraged to register for the webcast.

The presenter will be Julie Fershtman, a shareholder with the law firm of Foster Swift Collins & Smith, PC, one of the nation’s best-known and most experienced equine law practitioners.

She is the author of three books on equine law, including Equine Law & Horse Sense. She also hosts an equine law blog.

Details on the seminar can be found here.
