Client Registration

The Horse Riders’Code of Conduct

• I understand that riding at any standard and handling horses has inherent risk and that all horses may react unpredictably on occasions. I confirm I have the appropriate third party liability insurance in place to cover my horse causing injury or damage to the instructor, their property or to any third parties.

• I may fall off and could be injured and I accept that risk

• I understand that instructions are given for my safety and agree to follow instructions given to me by the instructor.  

• I understand that wearing an appropriate riding hat and body protector may reduce the severity of an injury should an accident happen and agree that I will always wear a riding hat whilst riding horses. I understand that it is advisable to wear a hat when handling horses on the ground. I understand it is my choice whether or not I wear a body protector.

• I understand that the instructor will make decisions based on information I give them and agree to always be honest and volunteer information about:

   - my abilities and riding experience,

   - any previous riding accidents,

   - any medical condition(s) which may affect my ability to ride

• I understand that children are at particular risk around horses and agree that I will keep children that I am responsible for, under close supervision when they are not being instructed by the instructor.

• I understand that the instructor may refuse my request to ride or undertake a particular activity on the ground for safety or operational reasons.
