Horses are raised and maintained for several different purposes. Horse expert witnesses often have background in the proper safety measures for both horses and their handlers. Horse trainers working within the equestrian field must operate within certain rules and regulations, the violation of which can result in litigation.
Whether dealing with racehorses, quarter horses, or show horses, horse owners must implement certain safety standards. Farms specializing in horse training, breeding, or buying and selling must adhere to a required standard of care as a means of ensuring the safety of horses, handlers, and horseback riders. If an accident were to occur resulting in injury, an accident investigation and reconstruction may be required of a horses expert witness as a means of determining the source of the incident, as well as who or what is responsible in terms of horse behavior and human factors.
Horse appraisal is also a major aspect of the equestrian field, as one must properly assess the value of horses before they are bought and sold. Whether a horse is being acquired for fox hunting, polo, coaching, or racing, horse appraisal is a valuable process within the field. Horses expert witnesses are licensed and/or certified as horse trainers, jockeys, veterinarians, and other related professions.
