The former Magnum PI star accused seller Dolores Cuenca of trying to pass off a show horse with a medical condition as fit to ride in competitions.
Defense lawyers argued Selleck did not check the vet records of 10-year-old animal named Zorro.
The $120,000 show horse had been purchased for Selleck’s 20-year-old daughter, Hannah, to ride in amateur competitions.
There will be a second trial held next week to determine how much Selleck should be paid in damages.
“We are pleased with the jury’s verdict and we look forward to the proceedings on Tuesday,” said Selleck’s lawyer, George Knopfler.
He declined to say how much the actor was seeking in punitive damages.
