Question Writing A Waiver?

What things should you put in a waiver when you're letting people around/ride/handle your horses?

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Contact a lawyer. To make a legal document that will hold up in court you need legal counsel. Don't risk it.

First thing is to find out what the Equine Liability laws are in your state.
Second, find one online that you can print and then adapt to the laws in your state if there are any. See if there is one at a boarding stable near you that you could be allowed to copy. Make sure you have insurance on your property . If it is a minor child make all parents or guardians involved sign and date and get t notarized, even with an waiver you can still be sued.

^^^ This. It will only cost you about $50 to have a lawyer provide you with a form that best protects you.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
