As an expert and consulting expert, her knowledge of equine industry standards include and extend beyond the following areas of horse valuations, liability, buying and selling, equipment appraisals, equipment safety, horse related accident reconstruction and analysis, equine accident prevention, degrees of negligence, stable management, horse abuse and neglect, riding instruction, trail riding, horse training, equine behavior, safety procedures, proper equipment usage, boarding and rental stables, show horses, breeding, standards in horse showing and training, equine liability and attorney education regarding the equine industry.

Bridget has often been called upon to find specialized experts or experts outside her specific area of expertise, such as thoroughbred racing or a top internationally known professional trainer, so Bridget decided to start an Equine Expert Witness Firm with top experts covering virtually every area of the equine industry.
