Boarder-Boardee Release form

I need some help coming up with a release form for my situation but Im just not sure how to put it into words. Recently my BO was alittle freaked out over so many people wanting to come see baby blossom because he daughters dog got alittle excited and almost bit someone. So he wanted me to move my horses, after thinking it over, if I can come up with a legal document he will let them stay.

I need a release form/waiver that says that I don't hold him responsible for any injuries that may occur from my horses or his dogs. But I also want to cover my butt, his daughter likes to be out with my horses when Im not around, as in brushing them ect but not riding. However in the off chance something happened where she was kicked or bitten I don't want to be held responcible for that eaither.

Do you guys have an ideas or could you show me some of your release forms you have for your boarders? I just want to avoid any lawsuits from either parties involved. Thanks!

-And please don't bash me for being on a verbal agreement before this..

What state do you live in? For example in ohio all we have to do is post the equine liability law in our barn (actually we don't even technically HAVE to have it posted).. the law understands that equines are dangerous. Otherwise I would just get a standard release of liability signed for visitors. Also... talk to the BO about how often visitors are acceptable and how many at a time. You don't want to overstep boundaries and piss off your BO.

I would double check that. It typically does not apply to a business where funds change hands - only to shows or other types of events.

OP - your boarding contract should cover your horse - AS LONG AS your horse is not overtly dangerous (history of kicking, biting, etc). As far as bringing tons of people out to visit, I'm rethinking our policy on that too. Brand new boarder, with a new horse. Bringing WAY too much non-horse knowing traffic for my or my other boarders comfort. I can see both sides and am hoping the novelty wears off soon.

Thanks for the replys :)

I live in Washington state. And to make my situation just a little bit more clear. I board out there pasture. I have 2 bigs horses and a mini mare with a filly on her side. My big boys are really sweet and mellow, however they are still horses. They have never kicked or bitten me but you just never know. They are the only horses on the property as well and will remain to be. It not big enough for more nor does he want any more boarders. They are an older couple who just enjoy having horses to look at and eat down there pastures.

As for blossom, the new filly, everyone wants to see her. She is visible from the road but you know family and friends. They want to pet her and take pictures with her ect. She is a huge little celebrity in my town with a huge fan club lol. That being said she is still a month old mini foal who is learning her boundaries. She has kicked at me but hasnt made contact, and she was spanked for it.
