Animals Act 1971

The Animals Act 1971 imposes strict liability on animal owners in certain circumstances.

When applying the Animals Act 1971, there are a number of considerations which must be given, including consideration as to the
horse itself, the circumstances in which the damage occurred and the damage itself.

If you have had issues with your horse causing damage and are concerned about your potential liability under the Animals Act 1971,
please get in touch for an initial, no obligation chat.
