About this livery contract

This comprehensive livery agreement provides everything you want in the agreement with your owners and full legal protection for you. It includes provision for details of services, prices and of course the horse or pony. By using this agreement, we are sure you will spend far less time wrestling with client issues, great and small.

This livery agreement is suitable for any yard. It is drawn very flexibly so as to give you the opportunity to edit it easily to suit the exact way you do business. Although it is drawn to protect your interest as strongly as possible, the draftsman has also considered what your clients will think when you send it to them. Your owners will not worry that they have to see a solicitor before they sign. However, as you read it, you may decide to soften some of the strictest suggestions we have made.

This Net Lawman livery agreement is written as a business tool that you can use for every client. It confirms your terms and their instructions. It compels a client to tell you basic facts about the horse and to disclose any vice. In a word, it enables you to plan and manage more efficiently.

Disclaimers also include cover for situation when you are asked to ride a client’s horse on your land or anywhere else.

You can also use the livery agreement to explain how the yard works and set down your practical rules and expectations.

The law in this livery agreement

A license is not required to operate a livery yard, and therefore anyone with spare stabling could offer livery. The law in this agreement is common law, so you can make the deal that fits both parties best. Either you can edit the agreement to be your terms and conditions (and use the same version for all customers) or you could edit this contract for each horse or pony you take. Of course we take it for granted that you are aware of equine welfare issues, but they do not impact directly on your contract with your owners.

When to use this livery agreement

A good, readable livery agreement provides a marker to your efficiency just as much as a tidy yard and contented horses. We advise that you should edit the document to exactly what you want, then print copies out ready to give to potential clients.

  • Drawn for professional livery yards
  • Can be presented to the horse owner as terms and conditions on a “take it or leave it” basis or can form the basis of individual arrangements

This agreement is suitable for full livery. For DIY livery see: DIY livery yard agreement.

Reassuring contract
29 November 2017
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.

I bought this agreement and then realised that what I needed was the equestrian lease agreement. This was sent speedily and at no extra cost.I found the equestrian lease easy to amend and the notes very helpful.
