Customer Question

hi i wonder if you can help advise on the following, i have a horse out on loan which the borrow has now terminated the contract and want me to pay out for all there expensiveness. the contract reads as following.

termination, the loan will be terminate in the following circumstances.the horse is found unfit for purpose due to medical conditions not declared to the borrow at the start of the contract and vices/ behavioral issues which would need extensive training and expense to rectify. should the owner seek termination of the contract within the specified loan period the owner will be liable for all fees incurred by the borrower including equipment, feed shoeing transport and rental cost.

as i see it as the borrow has terminated the contract and not the owner, the owner is not liable for the expensives, is this correct
