    ACTIVITY RISK CLASSIFICATION:

    Horseback riding is classified as a RUGGED ADVENTURE RECREATIONAL SPORT ACTIVITY, and that there are numerous obvious and non-obvious inherent risks always present in such an activity despite all the safety precautions. According to NEISS (National Electronic Injury Surveillance Systems of United States Consumer Products) horse activities rank 64th among the activities of people relative to injuries that result in a stay in a U.S. hospital. Related injuries can be severe requiring more hospital days and resulting in more lasting residual effects than injuries in
    other activities.

    RIDER RESPONSIBILITY:

    Upon mounting a horse and taking up the reins the RIDER is in primary control of the horse. The RIDER’S safety largely depends upon his/her ability to carry out simple instructions, and his/her ability to remain balanced aboard the moving animal. The RIDER shall be responsible for his/her own safety, and the safety of his/her own horse. I assume full responsibility for any injury or damage to my horse.

    “THIS FACILITY” is not responsible for total or partial acts, occurrences, or elements of nature that can scare a horse, cause it to fall, or react in some other unsafe way.
