    Default Free Horse Rehoming Contract

    How would I write up a free horse rehoming contract? Just like a regular sale contract? The horse hasn't been ridden in 3 or so years, needs vax and boosters, and dental work. Do I include that in the contract?

    I am trying to help my neighbors find a new home for one of their mares and I want to make sure everyone is on the same page.

    Thanks

    Well....is the horse going out on a lease, or is it going out as a "sale"?

    I always title it a "change of ownership" on a free horse...and list that once the paperwork is signed, the horse is now the full responsibility of the new owner.

    It's a "sale" I guess as the owners do not want her back.

    Luckydonkey, that's what I was thinking but wasn't sure what else to put in it.

    Might consider putting an "As-Is" clause in there. Something along the lines of "makes no guarantee as to the training, etc." I am sure you can find the clause online somewhere.

    There you go. This follows the section that gives the horse's most recent shots, shoeing, worming and the rest of the details that you'd like *everyone* to know that the seller conveyed to the owner. If I had a horse that had foundered and was a candidate for that in the future, for example, I'd want that to get written as well as told to the new owner.

    Also, I believe money needs to change hands in a contract. That's "consideration"-- some magic legal glue that seals the deal.
