RIDER NAME & AGE (if under 21):________________________________________________________________
B. AGREEMENT SCOPE AND TERRITORY AND DEFINITIONS – This agreement shall be legally
binding upon me the registered RIDER, and the parents or legal guardians thereof if a minor, my heirs,
estate, assigns, including all minor children, and personal representatives; and it shall be interpreted
according to the laws of the State of Texas . Any disputes by the RIDER shall be litigated in and venue
shall be the State of Texas.
The term “HORSE” herein shall refer to all equine species. The term “HORSEBACK RIDING” or
“RIDING” herein shall refer to riding or otherwise handling of horses, ponies, mules, or donkeys, whether
from the ground or mounted. The term “RIDER” shall herein refer to a person who rides a horse mounted
or otherwise handles or comes near a horse from the ground.
The terms “I”, “me”, “my” shall herein refer to the above registered rider and the parents or legal guardians

C. ACTIVITY RISK CLASSIFICATION – Horseback riding is classified as RUGGED ADVENTURE
RECREATIONAL SPORT ACTIVITY, and that there are numerous obvious and non-obvious inherent
risks always present in such activity despite all 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 at U.S. hospitals. Related injuries can
be severe, requiring more hospital days and resulting in more lasting residual effects than injuries in other
activities.
D. NATURE OF RIDING HORSES – No horse is a completely safe horse. Horses are 5 to 15 times larger,
20 to 40 times more powerful, and 3 to 4 times faster than a human. If a rider falls from a horse to ground it
will generally be at a distance of from 31/2 to 51/2 feet, and the impact may result in injury to the rider.
Horseback riding is the only sport where on much smaller, weaker predator animal (human) tries to impose
its will on, and become on unit of movement with, another much larger, stronger prey animal with a mind
of its own (horse) and each has a limited understanding of the other. If a horse is frightened or provoked it
may divert from its training and act according to its natural survival instincts which may include, but are
not limited to: stopping short, changing directions or speed at will; shifting its weight; bucking; rearing;
kicking; biting; or running from danger.
E. 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.
F. CONDITIONS OF NATURE – LAZY 8 RIDING STABLES 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.
