Dean Dorton’s Equine Team

Located in Kentucky, known for its world-class horse farms, racing, and sales, our firm has provided accounting, tax, and business consulting services to the horse industry for over 35 years. Our clients cover a broad spectrum of organizations involved in the horse industry, from small boarding farms to large multidepartmental farms involved in boarding, breeding, selling, and stallion management; from racing stables to a racetrack; from bloodstock agents to equine veterinary firms; and from industry associations to equine insurance agencies.

Not all of our clients are based in Kentucky; horse industry clients from other parts of the country and from outside the United States also gain comfort from having our industry specialists work with them. As a firm, we endeavor to know the business of horses, not just accounting and tax rules relating to the industry. We accomplish this in a number of ways, including, most usefully, by working with our many clients in the industry on their business matters.
