Lady Forbes makes a statement regarding Kürten’s loss of horses

Saturday, 29 January 2011

Jessica Kürten will no longer be riding the Castle Forbes-horses. Photo by Dirk Caremans/ reports that Lady Georgina Forbes’ official spokesperson and legal representative Eva Jacob has corrected the public statements made by Jessica Kürten yesterday regarding her loss of the Castle Forbes-horses. The statement reads as follows:

1.         It is not correct that Lady Forbes decided not to use her horses in sports events at the moment. The truth is that the contract with Ms Kürten was terminated by Lady Forbes as of December 31, 2010. After Ms Kürten refused – in violation of contractual obligations – to hand over the horses to the owner Lady Forbes after the contract had come to an end, Lady Forbes explicitly forbade her to take part in tournaments with the horses.

2.         Since Ms Jessica Kürten refused to surrender Lady Forbes’ horses, Lady Forbes was forced to seek legal support in Germany. A temporary injunction is pending, further legal actions will follow.

3.         Ms Jessica Kürten doesn’t have any claims concerning Lady Forbes. Claims raised by Ms Jessica Kürten after the end of the contract don’t have any basis. In case Ms Kürten does not revoke these allegations, Lady Forbes will seek clarification in court concerning this case as well.

4.         Ms Kürten refuses to allow a complete examination of the horses by a veterinarian selected by Lady Forbes. Furthermore, Ms Jessica Kürten explicitly refuses to allow this veterinarian to take a blood sample or respectively to hand over a blood sample taken in his presence.
