Which states use or require a mediation of equine related cases before
a trial is conducted or administrative judge hears a dispute or case?

I have not seen indications that there are ANY states that require
mediation or arbitration specifically for equine-related cases.

Mediation services are widely available in court systems, and parties
to a case might be strongly urged to try mediation before proceeding
with a suit.  Perhaps there are a few courts that even require

But I have not seen anything that is specific to equine law in this regard.  

There are a few commercial services, however, that specialize in
equine dispute resolution...I don't know if these are of interest to
you or not.

Let us know a bit more about what leads you to think there are some
states with mandatory mediation/arbitration requirements for equine
cases.  Perhaps with a bit more background, we can better zero in on
the information you're seeking.


There is no answer at this time.

What kind of equine related cases are you considering?
Dispute of ownership, veterinarian malpractice, mistreatment, doping?  ??

I could imagine that there are instances when disputes between members of 
an association (racing or other equestrian competition) under the bylaws agree
to submit to mediation/arbitration, rather than fighting in open court.
