Schelstraete Lawyers wins litigation about sale of an expensive dressage horse on behalf of a Spanish client

Schelstraete Law Firm represented a Spanish company (client) in a procedure at the District Court of Den Bosch (NL). Client sold a Lusitano dressage horse to a professional Japanese rider. The rider argued that the horse did not meet expectations and claimed back the purchase price of more than €1,000,000. The court rejected the claims of the rider; as the rider failed to prove that the horse suffered from defects at the time of delivery. The veterinarian of the rider also did not see any reason to check MRI-images offered by the client when performing the pre-purchase examination. Furthermore, the rider purchased the horse ‘as is’.
