Terms & Conditions

I acknowledge that RIDING IS A RISK SPORT AND HOLDS A POTENTIAL DANGER and that all horses may react unpredictably on occasions.

I am aware that The Children’s Riding Club (CRC) assumes no responsibility for any accident, injury or any other unforeseen event that may occur to me while riding with/at CRC.

I understand that I must obey the instructions always given by the riding instructor or ride escort.

I am aware that CRC reserves the right to refuse any member who it feels is either unsafe or unsuitable for equitation and that the decision made by CRC in this regard will be final.

I declare that I have no medical conditions that may affect my safety while riding with CRC. I am also fully aware that the club has no provision to handle any injury that may require emergency attention.

I have been advised to have adequate personnel accident insurance and to check with my insurers carefully as horse riding accidents are not covered by all insurers.

I have been advised not to enter any stable or horse handling area without assistance from an instructor. My decision to help in the stables/riding arena will be voluntary against permission from CRC management and will be at my own risk. I will not hold CRC or any of its employees responsible for consequential accidental damage or injury.

I am aware that for health and safety reasons the following is recommended for all riders:

  • No jewellery to be worn when riding or handling horses
  • Long hair to be tied back
  • To wear a correctly fitting hat with a securely fastened chinstrap and to current standards
  • Wear gloves
  • Wear Jodhpurs or stretchy fitted trousers
  • Footwear should be long riding boots or Jodhpur boots – if not yet purchased then boots or shoes with a flat sole and a small block heel
  • A personal body protector has also been advised but is not mandatory.

I have read and understood the above statement and accept the risks associated with riding horses and helping /working in the stables/riding arena. I agree to be responsible to the Instructor, Ride Escort, Secretary, Manager & Team at CRC and will abide by the club rules and directions always provided by them.

I confirm that to the best of my knowledge all the above details are correct.

This form must be signed or consented for by a parent or guardian for riders under the age of 18.
