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!
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
- 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.
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.
We are happy to answer any questions you have. Arrange for us to call you.
If the document isn’t right for your circumstances for any reason, just tell us and we’ll refund you in full immediately.

Our documents comply with the latest relevant law. Our lawyers regularly review how new law affects each document in our library.
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.
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.
