Regulatory Issues: Compliance Advice and Defending Actions

There are various equestrian-specific regulatory frameworks which apply to equestrianism. These include those imposed by a regulatory body, such as the British Equestrian Association or British Horseracing Authority as well as those regarding welfare on animals under the Animal Rights Act 1971. Although they may not all be relevant to you, it is important to cut through the red tape and be informed as to which are the most relevant to you.

There are also general regulatory areas such as complying with employment law requirements, meeting standards set by the Health and Safety Executive and protecting yourself regarding occupiers liability.
