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.
