Equine Liability


Do I have to sign a form?

Yes, all riders and spectators are required to sign our participation waiver before the activity begins. We will do our utmost to ensure the safety of all our riders.


If you would like to wear a helmet, you are welcome to bring your own or wear one of ours.

What is equine activity liability?

“This Virginia section provides that an equine activity sponsor, an equine professional, or any other person shall not be liable for an injury to or death of a participant resulting from the intrinsic dangers of equine activities.  Liability is not limited where the equine professional intentionally injures the participant, commits an act or omission that constitutes negligence for the safety of the participant, or knowingly provides faulty equipment or tack that causes injury.  The statute seems to imply that a waiver should be executed when a participant engages in equine activities to adequately insulate the equine professional.”
