In the last decade, the international equine Industry has grown enormously and the number of international horse deals has increased exponentially. Until recently, it was not common to execute contracts when selling and/or buying horses. However, currently the legal risk for both parties involved is serious, thus the industry understands the necessity of using contracts drafted by professionals. For this reason, the EUAELs have developed several standard-form documents that they offer to their clients, such as:
- Statement by seller
- Pre-purchase examination forms (PPE)
- General contracts of sale between buyers and sellers
