The Court of Appeal confirms earlier positive judgement for EEL’s foreign client

On January 13th 2015, the Court of Appeal Arnhem-Leeuwarden confirmed an earlier positive judgment in a short law suit.

The issue involved five horses from our client ‘A’ residing in Saudi Arabia which were trained  by B in England. At some point B moved the horses without permission from England to the Netherlands, where B kept the horses hidden for A.

In the earlier judgement B was ordered to stable the horses at a third party’s barn. B appealed to this decision and requested the Court of Appeal to determine that the horses need to be stabled at another barn and to allow B to train and compete with the horses.

The Court of Appeal rejected B’s claims and ruled in favour of our client!

In the Appeal proceedings A was represented by Mr. L. M. Schelstraete and Mr. V. Zitman of European Equine Lawyers.
