LIABILITY RELEASE FOR CLINIC
For and in consideration of participating in this event endorsed by Equine
Distance Riding Association (hereafter called EDRA), I understand and agree
* riding horses is a hazardous activity;
* equines are capable of being excitable, difficult, and/or unpredictable;
* accidents can happen to anyone at anytime - whether it is my equine
causing injury to another equine or person or whether it is another participant’s
equine causing injury to me or my equine;
* accidents can happen to anyone who attends a clinic or riding event
as a spectator or otherwise; and
* there is often NO ambulance or medical help present nor readily available.
I understand and agree that I assume full responsibility for my safety
and my equine’s safety. To the best of my ability, I will be vigilant
in preventing injury to others or equines.
In exchange for the privilege of participating in EDRA endorsed events,
I, my heirs, executors, and administrators will hold harmless and blameless
EDRA, and all the officers and directors thereof, all members of the ride
management and ride personnel, and all property owners/tenants upon whose
land the clinic is held from all liability for any injury or loss to myself
or my horse which occurs due to my participation, or anyone who accompanies
me to EDRA events.
I am fully aware of all clinic/event rules and agree to abide by those
rules set down by the event management and EDRA. I fully understand the
consequences of not following clinic/event rules.
This release is governed by the laws of the state of Washington and is
intended to be interpreted as broadly as possible. I agree that exclusive
jurisdiction and venue for any legal action against EDRA, its officers,
directors, employees, volunteer or agents shall be in Spokane County Superior
Court or federal court of the state of Washington, Eastern District. If
any part of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other
parts shall remain in effect.
I have read and fully understand the above liability release.
I am the parent and legal guardian of the youth(s) listed below. For and
in consideration of participating in this clinic/event endorsed by Equine
Distance Riding Association (hereafter called EDRA), I fully agree to the
above release and I sign it on behalf of myself and my child/children.
