Step 6: Liability Release
I agree to abide by the rules of OCTRA as well as other event sanctioning bodies (including but not limited to American Endurance Ride Conference, Endurance Canada and FEI). I understand that distance riding involves being in remote areas for extended periods of time, far from communication, transportation and medical facilities; that these areas have many natural and manmade hazards including unpredictable weather conditions, which ride managers cannot anticipate, identify, modify, or eliminate; that horses can be excitable, difficult to control, unpredictable; that accidents can happen to anyone at any time. I agree to take full responsibility for myself and the animal that I am riding. I will hold the event management, all personnel and all property owners over whose land the ride crosses, blameless for any accident or loss that might occur due to my participation in the ride and free from liability for such injury or loss.
I have read and fully understand this Liability Release Agreement
