THE HONG KONG PONY CLUB RELEASE, ASSUMPTION OF RISK, WAIVER OF LIABILITY, AND INDEMNITY AGREEMENT
This document waives important legal rights. Read it carefully before signing.
I AGREE for myself, and/or my child, in consideration for my, and/or my child’s, participation in Hong Kong Pony Club (HKPC) activities to the following:
I AGREE that I choose to participate voluntarily and at my own risk in an equestrian activity as a rider, handler, volunteer, agent and/or trainer. I am fully aware and acknowledge that horse sports and HKPC activities involve inherent dangerous risks of accident, loss, and serious bodily injury including, but not limited to, broken bones, head injuries, trauma, pain, suffering or death (“Harm”). I fully understand that this release covers, but is not limited to, inherent risks of an equine activity which mean a danger or condition that is an integral part of an equine activity, including but not limited to, any of the following:
• The propensity of an equine to behave in ways that may result in injury, death, or loss to persons on or around
• The unpredictability of an equine’s reaction to sounds, sudden movement, unfamiliar objects, persons, or other
• Hazards, including, but not limited to, surface or subsurface conditions;
• A collision with another equine, another animal, a person, or an object;
• The potential of an equine activity instructor to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury, death, or loss to the person of the participant or to other persons, including but not limited to, failing to maintain control over an equine or failing to act within the ability of the participant.
I AGREE to release the HKPC, officials, officers, committee members, contractors, employees, agents, personnel, volunteers and affiliated organisations from all claims including, but not limited to, claims for money or property, disability, covenants, actions, suits, causes or action, obligations, debts, costs, expenses, attorneys’ fees, judgments, orders and liabilities of whatsoever kind or nature in law, equity or otherwise, whether now known or unknown, suspected or unsuspected, and whether concealed or hidden, including but not limited to any claim or remedy of any kind whatsoever arising out of or in any way connected with any Harm to me and for any Harm caused by me or, even if the Harm resulted, directly or indirectly, from the negligence of the HKPC or the HKPC activity.
I AGREE to expressly assume all risks of Harm or damage to me or my property, including Harm or damage resulting from the negligence of the HKPC or the HKPC activity,
I AGREE to indemnify (that is, to pay any losses, damages, or costs incurred by) the HKPC and the HKPC activity and to hold them harmless with respect to claims for Harm to me or my property, and for claims made by others for any Harm caused by me or my property in the HKPC activity.
In the event this form is signed by the parent/guardian of a child, then all representations and acknowledgements herein are expressly made by, for, and on behalf of the parent/guardian and child.
By signing below, I AGREE to be bound by all applicable HKPC rules and all terms and provisions of the HKPC activity. I acknowledge that I enter into this release after having read the same, and place my signature hereto of my own free voluntary act and deed. By signing below, I represent to the HKPC that I fully understand its contents, that I do not need any further explanation, and I waive any further explanation.
