When to Call an Equine Lawyer

Armand Leone is an attorney by trade and no stranger to the court room, but when he leased a horse in 2012 that became injured, he was involved in a lengthy and expensive arbitration for which he hired a lawyer. After giving endless “horses 101” lessons to his counsel before any progress could be made on his case, Leone realized there was an opportunity for him to help his fellow horsemen. As a result, Leone Equestrian Law was born in 2014.

Choosing a college

Although my back porch thermometer says 102, I know that the dog days of summer are coming to a close. Soon my family will be racing the clock five mornings a week to make it to the school bus stop on time. My kids are too young to wonder where they will go to college, but for many high school seniors, the coming months will be filled with major decisions - one of which may be choosing a horse-friendly college.
