You could be sued for anything - but to protect myself this is what I have done:

1. Post your state's equine liability sign so they HAVE to see it upon entering property (front gate perhaps?)
2. Get a release where it states in plain english that riding is dangerous and rider acknowledges that fact. Also make certain that rider MUST wear an ASTM/SEI-approved equestrian safety helmet with a chin strap. Be certain you leave one in the tack room in case they don't have one so they don't have an excuse.
3. Both you and rider must sign release - in front of a third party who is not related to either of you.
4. Include both parties have initialed that you have walked them through some basics - proper way to catch, lead, clean, tie, and mount horse. Also that you have provided a safe place to ride - free of trash, etc.
5. Note in release that if either party varies off this agreement it must be in writing and initialed by both parties.

I ride for other people. I sign their releases and provide my own insurance. We do a contract on what they want how often, etc. Sometimes the cotract is as loose as __boots____ agrees to ride for __owner__ on an as needed basis for "x" dollars per ride. Other want so many hours a week or so many hours before they have some ride planned.

I ride at a separate place that none of us owns, and that place has it's own insurance for horse activities.
