The undersigned person or parent/guardian agrees to assume all responsibility and risk from the use of riding horses while attending summer camp, receiving riding instruction, or during general practice at Wingswept Farm. Further you agree to hold Wingswept Farm’s teachers, trainers, instructors, staff and employees harmless from all damages, liability or injury to person or property arising from riding lessons, general practice, equipment and presence in the stable or on the grounds of Wingswept Farm. This release includes activities at remote locations (such as horse shows, field trips, trail rides etc.). The undersigned person or parent/guardian acknowledges that horse back riding and other associated activities are inherently dangerous. Although not likely, risk of injury or death is a possibility.
WARNING: Under Kentucky state law, a farm animal activity sponsor, farm animal professionals, or other person does not have the duty to eliminate all risks of injury when participating in farm animal activities. There are inherent risks of injury that you voluntarily accept if you participate in farm animal activities. Under the Kentucky Equine Activity Statute KRS 247.4027, an equine professional is not liable for an injury to or the death of a participant in an equine activity resulting from an inherent risk of the equine activity.
The undersigned person consents to the performance of any necessary medical treatment in the case of an injury. Such medical treatment includes, but is not limited to x-rays, physical exams, anesthetic, medical or surgical diagnosis or treatment and/or hospital services. This medical consent applies to any activity at Wingswept Farm or activities under the authority of Wingswept Farm at remote locations. The undersigned agrees to pay all fees for doctors, hospital, ambulances, and any other medical charges incurred.
Helmets are to be worn at all times when riding at Wingswept Farm or remote locations under the instruction of Wingswept Farm representatives. The undersigned acknowledges that any instance of riding without a helmet is at the choice of the rider or that rider’s parent/guardian if the rider is of minor age. The undersigned specifically releases Wingswept Farm and its teachers, instructors, trainers, staff and employees from any liability resulting from any injury or accident that might have been avoided through the use of a helmet.
