Under Georgia state law, an equine activity sponsor or equine professional is not liable for injury to or the death of a participant in equine activities resulting exclusively from the inherent risks of equine activities. I understand that: Horseback riding is classified as RUGGED ADVENTURE RECREATIONAL SPORT ACTIVITY, and there are numerous obvious and non-obvious inherent risks always present in such activity despite all safety precautions. I understand the nature of the Horse/Pony, and understand that Sarah Johnson/Sarah rabe/Arabella Acres chooses its horses and ponies for their calm dispositions and sound basic training, and that Janet Menetrier follows a rigid safety program. Yet, no riding horse/pony is a completely safe horse/ pony. Horses and ponies are 5 - 15 times larger, 20 - 40 times more powerful, and 3 -4 times faster than a human. Should a rider fall from a horse or pony it will generally be a distance of 3.5 - 5.5 feet, and the impact may result in injury to the rider. Horseback riding is the only sport where one much smaller, weaker predator animal (human) tries to impose its will on, and become one unit of movement with, another much larger, stronger prey animal with a mind of its own (horse/pony) and each has a limited understanding of the other. If a horse/pony should be frightened or provoked it may divert from its training and act according to its natural survival instints which may include, but are not limited to: Stopping short, changing direction or speed at will, Shifting its weight, Bucking, Rearing, Kicking, Biting, or Running from danger. Property owner to obtain insurance for the above services requested. Property owner, Client providing the activity their heirs and guests, assume all risks involved in or arising from the use of the services provided by, Janet Menetrier and all of its successors, assigns, subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, directors and heirs completely harmless and not liable and release them from all liability whatsoever and agree not to sue them on account of or in connection with any claims, including without limitation, those based on death, bodily injury, property damages, and any consequential damages. Should any clause be in conflict with the State Law, then that clause is null and void.
