Hello, thank you for your question. My name is***** can assist you with this.
Was the horse advertised as being free from vice?
Or described to you in that way?
hello are you there
Yes, I'm here.
Okay. If the horse was wrongfully described to you, in the sense of it being free from vice, wehen it was clearly not, then you would have been mis-sold the horse.
As such, you are likely to have a claim based on the law of misrepresentation. This means that you can end the contract and insist upon your money back. Obviously, you have to return the horse too.
This is on the assumption that you would not have purchased the horse had its true description been given to you.
Firstly, you should try and get the money back by consent, and I know you've already made efforts at doing that. If that fails, then you could issue a small claim assuming the overall amount sought is less than £10,000.
You do that by issuing proceedings online at www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
