catch rider contract
I am new here and just looking for a little help. I currently own 9 horses, 3 of which are barrel horses, and although I ride them, I am interested in having someone ride one for me, competatively. I am looking for a catch rider or jockey contract. I need something that will specify % of winnings split and cost, ect...a temptate contract would be very helpful as I do not want to pay the legal fees to have one drafted by a lawyer. thanks, -JRL

You are like 21 hours from me! Ugh. If you were closer I would be all over that deal... & well at this very moment I have my hands tied with my 2yr old Arab.

If you do need help with the contract I could help you out. No fee.

This is probably something an equine lawyer in your state would be best to have address for you.

Too many details to cover that a simple wrong word could lead to all kinds of issues.

yeah the problem is they all want an arm and a leg to draft a "custom" contract. There has to be a generic catch rider contract out there some where...I cant be the first person in the horse world to have a catch rider under
