Livery agreements

These livery agreements include variants for full livery, where training and additional services might be offered, and for DIY livery, where the client is expected to have hands-on involvement in the case of the horse. All documents are in plain English and can be either presented to a client as your “terms and conditions” or signed like a formal legal document. They are drawn by a life time horse owner so include matters you may not expect a lawyer to know!


    Livery agreement

    4 Reviews

    This comprehensive contract is suitable for any professional yard.

    The document can be presented to the horse owner as terms and conditions on a “take it or leave it” basis or it can form the basis of individual arrangements. It allows for different packages of services: full and partial.

    Although it is written to protect your interests as strongly as possible, we have considered what your clients will think when you send it to them. We use wording that will not worry them that they have to see a solicitor before they sign.

    We provide for everything you might want in the agreement with your clients and give you strong legal protection. The document covers:

    • details of services and prices
    • terms for use of additional facilities such as a cross-country course
    • care of equine including veterinary call-out
    • insurance
    • safety
    • basic facts about the horse and disclosure of any vices

    The disclaimers also include cover for a situation where you are asked to ride a client’s horse.

    As well as setting out the contractual terms, you can also use the document to explain how the yard works and to set down your practical rules and expectations.

    DIY livery yard agreement

    6 Reviews

    This is full livery agreement for yard owners who provide “do-it-yourself” livery services to horse owners.

    The yard owner provides a loose box and basic facilities, but the horse owner feeds, exercises and generally cares for the equine.

    This agreement is based on our standard livery agreement, but sets out your reduced responsibility for the equine while it is on your property.

    What customers thought
    Covered Key Points
    For me the biggest concern about using Net Lawman was whether it would be worth the cost and be written in a way i could understand easily without a back ground in legalities and contracts. Included in the package was an editing legal documents guide which helped do the small amendments i used to personalise it to my specifications. The agreement itself was easy to understand. I think it was good value for money and would use the extra service if needed. I would recommend Net Lawman for the documents and the service they can provide. Having a document that specifies easily what is required in a yard gives me some peace of mind.
    Reassuring contract
    Biggest concern that it would not be relevant to my business.
    Realised my present contract does not protect me enough and liked the ethos of NL contract..
    most important feature is the combination of protecting myself and staff and customer confidence in what they are signing.
    Benefit from using it has not been tested yet but am sure it will be one day.
    Would def recommend, quick and easy for those of us with no time to spare but covers all areas that concern my business.
    Tam Miall
    Easy Amendment
    As with any business these days, operating a livery yard requires a good knowledge of the legalities other than the practical skill.
    While the majority of clients are easy to deal with, those who are not can present untold challenges.
    The way this document is produced enables anyone to tailor it to their specific requirements.
    I would definitely recommend this template to anyone in the business.
