This contract is set for the date of 20. This standard contract for horse representation serves only to guide and legal advice is needed to ensure that each contract is legally binding. The loan can be beneficial for both the borrower and the owner. Buying a horse or ponies can be expensive so many people are looking to borrow a horse instead because it takes away the initial cost, but with many of the same tasks as owning a horse. The loan is a less durable deal than buying and it can be a fantastic first step to having your own horse. The law requires that a passport remain in the horse`s place. Therefore, the passport must be kept by the person who has the primary care of the horse, if not the owner. When a horse is loaned and moved to a new farm, the loan must have the original passport. Many owners feel uncomfortable, but there are a number of steps you can take to protect yourself, including: If you want to borrow a horse, you should not accept a horse that is not accompanied by a valid and current passport. Make sure that the name of the owner, whose horse you lend, is the current registered owner. Cover the part of the horse known as: `the `horse`) Be sure to consider all the factors before borrowing your horse, especially the horse`s ability to be a welfare of the utmost importance. Does your horse, for example, have a disease that requires specialized care, or is your horse older and going to a mate? Your horse will be out of your daily control, and there have been occasions when horses have been loaned to people considered trustworthy, but the horse unfortunately ends up in a neglected state.
We always recommend asking for references for potential credit homes, looking at the loan at home, and then visiting your horse regularly to check their health and well-being. If you need advice in the event of a breach of contract, this will be considered a civil matter and professional legal advice should be sought. Unfortunately, the BHS cannot contribute directly to the resolution of civil cases. For a loan to work well, both parties must agree on their responsibilities and ensure that all contingencies are planned, especially what will happen when the loan expires unexpectedly. We strongly discourage a written agreement. Make sure the agreement is acceptable to both parties; Don`t agree with something if you don`t intend to put it into practice or if you don`t agree. A loan contract is an important way to reduce risk and protect the owner, the loan player and, of course, the horse. There are always other issues that should be included in the agreement, which are specific to the loan concerned, and that is why the single standard form, the loan agreement, is not an ideal option when a loan contract is established. Another example is that the rental player requires that the horse be taken care of by a certain Farrier/veterinarian, where the horse has specific needs.
The loan of a horse can sometimes be even more important than selling or buying. As a loan player, you take the risk of putting a potentially valuable horse into the care and training of another person. And there have been recent cases of people claiming to borrow a horse under a false name and then sell the horse without a trace. It is therefore of the utmost importance to make sure to whom you lend your horse. The prospect of lending a horse is exciting, but there are a number of important considerations, such as time commitment and finances, that need to be carefully rethought before choosing a loan.
