READ THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS fully and carefully prior to signing. This is a legally valid and binding obligation to release COMPANY from all known and unknown obligations, AND TO INDEMNIFY COMPANY AGAINST CLAIMS BROUGHT AGAINST IT BASED UPON YOUR USE OF THE horse. This instrument affects important legal rights.
Release and Waiver of Claims.
For valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged Rider does hereby remise, release, and forever discharge Company, Companys agents, servants, successors, heirs, executors, administrators and personal representatives, of and from all, and all manner of, actions, causes of action, suits, proceedings, debts, dues, contracts, judgments, damages, claims, and demands whatsoever in law or equity, which Rider ever had, now has, or which Riders heirs, executors, administrators or personal representatives hereafter can, shall, or may have for or by reason of any matter, cause, or thing whatsoever arising out of this Agreement; out of the use (misuse, or abuse) of the horse, or in any way arising out of the rental relationship between Rider and Company.

                Rider Initials
2.     Nature of Stable Horses.    I understand that these horses have been chosen for their calm dispositions and sound basic training and a rigid safety program is followed.  Yet no horse is completely safe.   If a Rider falls from horse to ground, it would generally be a distance of  around  4 feet, and an impact may result in injury to the rider.  Despite its training, when a horse is frightened or provoked, it may take actions such as stopping short, changing direction at will, shifting its weight, bucking, rearing, kicking, biting or running from danger.      
3. Acceptable Use.  Rider agrees and acknowledges that he/she will be the sole rider of the Horse, and will use the Horse in a careful, safe and conscientious manner.  Rider shall at all times observe and adhere to any rules and guidelines posted by Company, and any applicable laws or regulations.  
4.  Prohibited Activities.  Rider shall not violate any of the following rules and regulations during his/her operation of the Horse:
    There is no smoking while on the Horse.
    There are no alcoholic beverages permitted while riding the Horse.  
5.     Unsafe Use.  If at any time Company determines that Rider has engaged in an unsafe or hazardous use of the Horse, Company may immediately terminate the rental. Upon notification of termination, Rider must return the Horse to the designated return area immediately.  If the Rider is terminated for unsafe or hazardous use, Rider will not be refunded his/her security deposit.  Company shall determine, in its sole discretion, whether any behavior or activity is “unsafe or hazardous.
6.      Protective Headgear Offering   I, for myself or on behalf of my child, have been offered protective headgear by Company and understand that the wearing of such during this activity may prevent  or reduce severity of head injuries, and may even prevent death which could occur as a result of a fall or other occurrence.
Protective Headgear Offering Acceptance
I/we accept the offered protective headgear.
                        Riders Initials  Protective Headgear Offering Refusal
I/we refuse the offered protective headgear .and will provide own.  I accept full responsibility for my/our safety.            __________
                        Riders Initials        
7.    Equipment     Each horse is wearing a saddle.  I understand that saddle girths (saddle fasteners around the horses belly) may loosen during a ride.  Upon noticing any loosening, rider should alert nearest guide as quickly as possible so action can be taken to avoid slippage of saddle and a potential fall from animal.
I/We the undersigned, have read and understand the foregoing agreement, warnings, release and assumption of risk.
