Recent Law Change Impacts California Horse Sales Transactions

Free seminar to be hosted by, will help to educate horse professionals about recent changes to California equine law. On May 2, 2011 Equestrian will host a free webinar for horse professionals to discuss recent changes to the California Business and Professions Code 19525. This code affects how horses can be sold in the state of California and has serious implications for horse professionals. This law specifically addresses how things such as bills of sale, commissions, financial records and dual agency must be handled when horses are sold. The code also has a treble damages clause, which could mean stiff financial penalties for horse professionals who fail to comply.

In order to ensure that California horse professionals are aware of the law and its implications, Equestrian – The Horse Business Site will host a free webinar with equine law expert Paul B. Husband, Attorney At Law.

Mr. Husband is a Fellow of the American College of Equine Attorneys, a successful breeder and equine business activist. He was also the attorney for the prevailing party in the highly publicized Tom Selleck horse sale case.

“This law definitely affects how horse professionals conduct business and we felt it was important to provide the equine business community with an opportunity to learn about the law and changes they may need to make to their agreements and business practices,” said Elisabeth McMillan, editor at Equestrian “Mr. Husband's extensive experience and successful representation of Mr. Selleck makes him uniquely qualified to discuss the legal aspect of equine sales and how the courts may interpret this new law.”

This seminar is free to all horse professionals and can be attended via phone or computer. To register or learn more about Equestrian Professional’s free “California Equine Sales Law Seminar for Horse Professionals” please go to or visit
