WEBINAR | Sales Fraud in the Horse Industry
Julie Fershtman was the featured speaker for a national webinar on Tuesday, October 14, 2014, which will be conducted through Michigan State University Department of Animal Science and its Cooperative Extension Program through a grant from the U.S. Equestrian Foundation Trust.
Many people still believe that the old rule of "buyer beware" holds true for every transaction, including horse sales. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, buyers can have several potential legal rights with respect to horse sales, and sellers need to be aware of them. The horse industry nationwide has seen lawsuits involving horse sales. This webinar will generally discuss, in an understandable and down to earth way, the legal rights of sellers and buyers in a horse sale transaction. It will also discuss practical efforts that sellers and buyers do to protect their interests in an effort to avoid disputes (and lawsuits) when buying or selling horses.
