The plaintiff was injured at his commercial horse stable. He alleged that his injuries were caused by the defendant’s horse, which he had been hired to stable and care for. The plaintiff had no memory of the incident and there were no witnesses to it. He was found on the ground with blood dripping from his head. He alleged that the defendant was strictly liable for her horse’s actions, and that the defendant was negligent with respect to the horse’s training. Following a trial, Justice Nightingale found that the plaintiff failed to prove how his injuries occurred, and dismissed the action.
