By signing the form below, both the participant and parent (if participant is a minor) understand and accept the risks and rules below:
I understand that the handling, use, and riding of a horse involves the risk of injury or death. I also understand that under Vermont Law, an equine activity sponsor is not liable for an injury to or death of a participant in equine activities resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities that are obvious and necessary, pursuant to 12 V.S.A. 1039. With full knowledge of these and all other dangers inherent to the sport of horseback riding and equine activities, I am knowingly participating in boarding/riding and or training at Livery Horse Farm and voluntarily engage myself, and/or my minor child in these activities and fully assume all risks involved.
I understand that I must follow the policies and safety rules of The Livery Horse Farm when at these premises.
I agree to fully and forever release and hold harmless Livery Horse Farm, its employees, owners, riding instructors, and other agents acting on behalf of or for The Livery Horse Farm from any and all liabilities due to injuries, claims, damages, actions, or losses, which may arise out of my, my minor child’s, or my guest’s presence at The Livery Horse Farm or the boarding or handling of my horse, including without limitation this farm’s ordinary negligence in the operation of the farm.
Except in the event of the farm’s gross negligence or willful misconduct, I shall bring no claims, demands, actions, or litigation against the farm, its owners, employees, riding instructors, and any other agents acting on behalf of or for The Livery Horse Farm for any economic losses and non economic losses due to bodily injury, death or property damage, sustained by me or my minor child (if applicable) in relation to the premises and operations of this stable.
I HAVE READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS ENTIRE LIABILITY RELEASE.
