I understand that activities involving horses carry inherent risks and can be potentially dangerous despite all safety precautions. A horse may behave in a manner that result in damages to property or an injury or death to a person. Risks associated with the activity may include but are not limited to injuries caused by bucking, biting, stumbling, rearing, trampling, scratching, falling, or butting.
The horse may react unpredictably to conditions, including, but not limited to, a sudden movement, loud noise, an unfamiliar environment, or the introduction of unfamiliar persons, animals, or objects. The horse also may react in a dangerous manner when a condition or treatment is considered hazardous to the welfare of the animal; a collision occurs with an object or animal; or a participant fails to exercise reasonable care, take adequate precautions, or use adequate control when engaging in a domesticated animal activity, including failing to maintain reasonable control of the horse or failing to act in a manner consistent with the person's abilities.
I represent that I am in good physical condition, and I am not aware of any disease or injury that would be aggravated or result in my being incapacitated or injury that would be aggravated or result in my being incapacitated or injured during any program participation except as designated herein.
There also are risks that I, my child or my ward may take while mounting, leading, riding, and feeding or otherwise interacting with horses.
