riding horses and/or when maintaining the property. I understand that Miracles
in Motion requires me to wear properly fitted and secured ASTM-standard/SEI
certified protective headgear at all times when riding horses.

or assigns, release and discharge Miracles in Motion Therapeutic Equestrian
Center and its employees, agents, board of directors, volunteers, instructors
and others acting on behalf of all claims resulting from or arising out of my
bodily injury or damage that may be sustained which may occur as a result of
being on the Miracles in Motion property.
I understand that anyone riding or near a horse can
suffer bodily injuries, as a number of inherent risks are associated with a
domesticated animal activity. A domesticated animal, horse, may behave in a
manner that results in damages to property or an injury or death to a person.
Risks associated with the activity may include injuries caused by bucking,
biting, stumbling, rearing, trampling, scratching, pecking, falling, or
butting. The domesticated animal may react unpredictably to conditions,
including, but not limited to, a sudden movement, loud noise, an unfamiliar
environment, or the introduction of unfamiliar persons, animals, or objects.
The domesticated animal may also react in a dangerous manner when a condition
or treatment is considered hazardous to the welfare of the animal; a collision
occurs with an object or animal; or a participant fails to exercise reasonable
care, take adequate precautions, or use adequate control when engaging in a
domesticated animal activity, including failing to maintain reasonable control
of the animal or failing to act in a manner consistent with the person’s
is mutually understood and agreed that the provision of this liability release
shall constitute a waiver of liability for injury to, or death of an equine
activity participant, including, but not limited to those provided for under
the following provisions of the Iowa Code Chapter 673:
Under Iowa law, a domesticated animal professional is
not liable for damages suffered by, an injury to, or the death of a participant
resulting from the inherent risks of domesticated animal activities pursuant to

domesticated animal activity.

years of age or older, and of sound mind. I have read and agree to all of the
terms of this entire liability release and indemnity agreement.
