The Equine Injury team at Outer Temple Chambers hosted The Equine Seminar on 1st March 2023 alongside a line up of some the industry’s best known experts. Chaired by Jonathan Hand KC, topics included a Legal Update, a look at the Animals Act from an expert’s point of view, a discussion on the recent judgment in Schoultz v Ball [2022] EWHC 2452 (KB), and a discussion on the recent Freddy Tylicki case, amongst other issues in the sport.

We were delighted to welcome guest speakers, and experts in their field, Anne-Marie Taylor, Charlie Lane, Clare Garnett, Richard Brooks and professional jockey, Saffie Osborne.

The second talk of the afternoon was from former champion and now internationally recognised equestrian judge Anne-Marie Taylor. She is also a well-respected Expert Witness and has been instructed in many cases for both claimant and defendant in Animal Act cases as well as negligence, personal injury and valuations. Each time she has appeared in Court her evidence was preferred.
