Summary Even more so than today, the horse was a valuable commodity to the everyday man or woman in the late 17th century. Horses were used for transportation and labor and regarded as valuable pieces of property. Because of the expense and value of the animals, lawyers would specialize in equine legislation to aid clients in cases where the animals were involved.ℓ The Law of Horses details the intricacies of equine law in Scotland and the United Kingdom up until 1892, and contains nearly every court case from the mid-1800s that involves horses and the shaping of equine legislation. The volume outlines what the law dictates in cases where horses are being bought and sold, used as collateral for loans, left in the care of a veterinarian or trainer, found as the cause of damages to another’s property, and evaluated for insurance purposes. The volume also contains complete texts of The Veterinary Surgeons Act and the Animals Order Act of 1886 in addition to groundbreaking legislation and court decisions that made significant strides in laws against animal cruelty and promoting equine safety.
