For and in consideration of membership in Equine Distance Riding Association (hereafter called EDRA) and for participating in the distance rides endorsed by EDRA, I understand and agree that distance riding on horseback is a hazardous activity. I understand and agree that I assume all the risk and full responsibility for my safety, my equine’s safety, and the safety of anyone who accompanies me to any EDRA events. To the best of my ability, I will be vigilant in preventing injury to other persons or equines.
In exchange for the privilege of participating in EDRA endorsed distance rides, I, my heirs, executors, and administrators will hold harmless and blameless EDRA, and all officers and directors thereof, all members of the ride management and ride personnel, and all property owners/tenants upon whose land the distance rides are held from all liability for any injury or loss to myself or my horse which occurs due to my participation, or to anyone who accompanies me to EDRA events.
I am fully aware of all ride rules and agree to abide by those rules set down by ride management and EDRA. I fully understand the consequences of not following ride rules.
I authorize EDRA to take photographs of me and my equine and to use all such pictures on its website, facebook page, or in any material published by EDRA.
This release is governed by the laws of the state of Washington and is intended to be interpreted as broadly as possible.
I agree that exclusive jurisdiction and venue for any legal action against EDRA, its officers, directors, employees, volunteers or agents shall be in Spokane County Superior Court or federal court of the state of Washington, Eastern District.
If any part of this agreement is determined to be unenforceable, all other parts shall remain in effect.
I have read and fully understand the above liability release.
