Bridget Brandon brings 30 years of equine industry knowledge and experience as a top testifying and consulting expert witness and has been qualified in both Federal and State Courts. She has testified in depositions, jury and bench trials, has assisted in mediation and has often been asked to locate other specialized experts for attorneys. She works on both liability and valuation cases and serves both defendants and plaintiffs. Not only does she bring her knowledge and experience with horses as an expert witness, she brings a wealth of professional experience as a former marketing strategist and business development executive for fortune 100 and 500 companies. Bridget’s passion for horses, confidence in her ability to provide unbiased and accurate opinions to the court, consistency throughout the entire legal process, strategic thinking, and her ability to educate the court on specialized facts makes her an excellent expert witness. The need for an Equine Expert Witness Firm with top specialist and a collaborative culture led Bridget and Sara Ballinger to develop the concept of The Equine Expert LLC.

Bridget bought her first farm in 1992, where she boarded horses and began a boutique warmblood breeding business. She has owned two other farms where she grew her breeding business, boarded retired show horses and allowed trainers to come in and train boarders and trailer in students. Bridget’s farm was one of the main locations for the German Oldenburg Inspection in North Texas for many years. Bridget has been a judge for the North Texas Hunter/Jumper Club and other local hunter/jumper associations for many years.
