During the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival, Krysia Nelson taught a 10-week course titled "Equine Law 101 - Business Essentials For Horsemen."  

This course focused on the “business” of horses and introduced business law concepts relevant to those engaged in either professional or recreational equestrian activities.


Course description/summary:  An introductory, college level, business law course focusing on essential horse industry topics, such as contracts, sales, business organization, insurance, regulatory bodies, liability, employment and immigration law.  By focusing on case studies, as well as recent cases, the class will prepare its members to respond competently in a variety of business situations.

2012 Student Testimonials:

"Equine Law 101 was one of the most informative and enjoyable educational experiences I've ever had.  Not only does Krysia teach with enthusiasm and clarity but her expertise was a breath of fresh air in the world of Equine Law.  Her use of real-life examples made the subject matter not only simple to understand but gave the class a practical importance that I believe is invaluable to each and every equine enthusiast.  You are putting yourself at unnecessary risk by NOT taking this course! "
