Assumption of the Risk and Waiver of Liability Relating to Coronavirus/COVID
I understand and acknowledge that:
• The World Health Organization has declared the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) a worldwide pandemic;
• The President of the United States has declared that COVID-19 constitutes a national emergency and a public health risk;
• Due to its capacity to transmit from person-to-person through respiratory droplets, the government has set recommendations, guidelines, and some prohibitions to which the Equine Distance Riding Association (EDRA) adheres;
• EDRA and ride managers putting on EDRA sanctioned endurance rides or other EDRA sponsored activities (Event(s)) cannot guarantee my safety or immunity from infection; and
• Although there is a known vaccination for COVID-19, even those who are fully vaccinated can still contract COVID and become seriously ill and/or die.
In consideration of my participation in or presence at the undersigned acknowledge and agrees as follows:

• I waive and release EDRA, the Event manage, all Event volunteers, agents, and attendees from all present and future claims of any type for any harm or loss, including but not limited to, economic loss, personal injury, disease, death, or property damage suffered by me as a result of my participation at the Event.
• I agree to indemnify, hold harmless, and covenant not to sue EDRA, the Event, all Event volunteers, agents, and attendees for any personal injury, death, medical expenses, disability, loss of capacity, property damage, court costs, attorney’s fees, or other loss arising out of my participation at a Event.
