An ounce of prevention.....

I would hate for you to regret your trust when you face a million dollar lawsuit. No harm in writing up and having signed and notarized a liability release. The thirty extra minutes it might take you could potentially save you a ton of time, headache, and money later.

The above. STRONGLY.

Mum used to teach kids to ride, on a bombproof pony, on lead, in a round pen. Because of all the precautions she took, her insurance was relatively cheap, but they MADE her make all her clients sign a waiver, or she would not be covered. And that was with a comprehensive safety plan, with proper safety gear (helmets, riding boots, toe-stopper stirrups, one kid had half-chaps that her parents bought her), and the kids weren't even allowed near the pony without their helmets on.

To have a horse rearing on command with a rider on board who cannot see properly is much more dangerous than that. YOU MUST HAVE INSURANCE, and any good insurance company will insist that the stuntman sign a waiver.

Don't come crying to us when there's an accident and the stuntman sues you for every cent you're worth. We did warn you.

Edit; also, our insurance, for 1 year, was just under $2k, and covered us for anywhere on the planet, for up to ten million dollars. We had it VERY cheap because of the safety measures we took and the one-on-one lessons, a larger or riskier operation would cost more. But it IS WORTH EVERY CENT.

If you don't get a waiver you will be making a big mistake, maybe they arent thinking of the dangers that could come from rearing a horse, incuding medical bills that maybe the rider wasn't thinking of before they boarded the horse... Its up to you but I really storngy reccoment having one done for your own good. Its better to be safe then sorry and being sued.

If you are hiring someone they should have their own insurance in the US anyway. I hired a clinician and he is providing insurance for the clinic attendees

Yes I understand that and that is why I made reference that I am in the US and possibly some of the other opinions are people from the US

Maybe it would be easier to hire someone to film the shots you want & edit them into your film or go to the horse yourself.

All I can envision right now is a stuntman breaking his legs, saying "Wohoo! Free money!" and then taking advantage of the fact you didn't have a liability waiver in place.

Better safe than sorry.
