Terms and Conditions

I understand all rides are supervised by staff at The Ranch MP. I will listen to and heed all directions prior to and during the ride. I further acknowledge that I MUST wear an approved riding helmet and enclosed boots with a heel at all times. I understand a horse is a large, heavy herd animal, a creature of flight that can react without warning. A horse has highly developed senses of hearing, sight and smell which can make its behaviour towards sounds, sudden movement, unfamiliar objects, people or other animals, unpredictable and potentially harmful to the rider. A horse can (without limitation) bite, buck, bolt, fall, kick, pig-root, rear, roll, shy, stumble or stand on you whilst in their surrounds (the Risks). The Risks are greatly increased when more than one horse is handled or ridden at the same time, and when riders and handlers have different levels of skill and experience. I am aware of the Risks I will be exposed to by riding and/or handling a horse including the possibility of death, physical or mental injury even if I act safely and wear an approved riding helmet and heeled boots. I am aware that it is my responsibility to inform staff at The Ranch MP of any pre-existing injuries prior to participating in this activity.
