Michael Bower Equine Law is proud to be involved in the sponsorship of the following:

Skipton Horse Trials Sponsorship

Michael Bower has been involved in Skipton Horse Trials for over 25 years and in 2015 he took the hard decision to retire as one of the organisers. He remains a keen supporter and sponsor of the event.

The event takes place in June & August each year. Michael and the team at Waddington Turner Wall want to take this opportunity to wish all the competitors and their horses/ponies every success for Skipton Horse Trials and the 2016 eventing season.

British Eventing Northern Under 18 BE100 Team Championship 2015 (Weston Park) Sponsorship

Michael Bower Equine Law (part of Waddington Turner Wall Solicitors) were very proud to support the U18 Northern Team who competed at British Eventing Championships at Weston Park in September 2015. The team performed extremely well and ultimately came third with only a small number of points separating the first three teams.

The firm provided waterproof jackets and hoodies for the team to wear at the event and hopefully these will be seen on the equestrian circuit for some time to come!

Michael Bower Equine Law is a specialist area of Waddington Turner Wall and the Directors consider that it is important to support those who could well be the future stars of the sport.

Letter from Heidi Stewart,British Eventing U18 Northern Region Assistant

Dear Michael,
I would like to thank you for your generous sponsorship of our Under 18 British Eventing 100 Northern Team on their recent trip to the festival of youth at Weston Park in Shropshire they looked very smart in your hoodies and jackets.

They all did very well we had a winner individually and the team was 3rd only 3 marks off 1st place! If only that show jump had stayed up (!) and all of the riders completed with everyone clear cross country so very respectable finish to the season.

Thanks again
Heidi Stewart

What our clients say..

Thanks again for going above and beyond to get that contract drawn up. We are very pleased with it!

We really are so happy with the work done and all your advice has been taken on board. Its been a great experience.

Ms Black 23.10.2020   

Michael put me at ease straight away. He was so approachable and welcoming from the the first minute I spoke to him. He had so much knowledge and gave me such fantastic advice. He really helped to clarify my position and ways forward. I would highly recommend Michael Bower for anyone wishing to seek legal advice and representation.

Mrs Young 26.10.2020   

I asked Michael Bower to assist me on a potential property issue concerning our boundaries and rights of access.

I was very glad of his competent help and practical advice. He immediately came to view and discuss the site in question, and followed it up with detailed and rigorous research, document search of deed and land registry. His responses were detailed, clear and prompt. He was always easy to contact and gave realistic appraisal on the problem of pursuing the issue without adequate back up – including potential costs.

I would strongly recommend him for attending to enquiries of this kind

Nigel Young PhD. 16.09.2020   

I would like to thank Michael for the expedient, efficient, and professional manner in which he assisted me with a personal legal matter surrounding my horse.

His courteous, down to earth attitude and his ability to grasp the seriousness of the situation was indeed a great comfort to me. The matter has now been resolved and I can only thank Michael for his time in helping me sort the issue to its favourable conclusion.

I would have no reservations in recommending Michael and WTW solicitors to anyone.

Sue Williams 27.04.2020   

Rebecca was absolutely fantastic. Not only did she have a true understanding of my side of the story, but she went above and beyond with doing background research for me, taking a real interest and wanted to succeed as much as I did. She also spent time answering my many questions and giving me advice over the phone before I even became a client, which she didn’t actually have to do, and most solicitors will not do until you are a client.

I really felt as if, contrary to the other solicitors I spoke to before chosing Rebecca, that she genuinely had my best interests in mind rather than just wanting to take my money. She then did an excellent job corresponding with the person the case was against and instilled confidence in me to remain strong, whilst remaining honest and realistic throughout. Although my case was fairly clear cut, I have no doubt that in another situation she would have still been honest with me about my options.

She has so much knowledge on legalities that she always had an answer for my queries, however specific they were. I don’t have much knowledge of law but Rebecca always explained things in a clear way that left me confident I understood what the next steps and options were. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough, especially for someone looking for an expert in equine law.
