Hi everyone. I am in the process of gathering evidence, witness statements, vet reports, etc., in order to take a horse trainer/stud to small claims court. Basically, they starved and severely injured two of my horses, to the extent that they can no longer be ridden. These people are claiming to have legal representation. I have attempted to contact the stud in an attempt to settle out of court, and they will not respond. I have also requested contact details for their legal team, again no response. Do I just proceed with small claims as per standard or must I send the documents to their solicitors? There is a number of past clients who have experienced a similar thing, but a class action is not an option. Also, what is the cut off limit for small claims? My claim is close to 15000. Thank you.
