I, the undersigned ("Volunteer"), am over 18 years of age and fully competent to make this Statement of
Understanding, Authorization, Release and Indemnity ("Statement"), which I have read and understand. I
understand the information I have provided may be verified and permit Equest to inquire of others
concerning my suitability as a volunteer. In the course of volunteering, I may deal with confidential
information and agree to keep said information in the strictest confidence. The relationship between
Equest and me is an "at will" arrangement and may be terminated at any time, without cause, by either
Equest or me. I understand that, as a volunteer, I will assist in the riding and instruction of mentally or
physically challenged riders, and that I will work with and around horses, as well as riders. I understand
that I cannot serve as a volunteer until this Statement has been signed.
In return for the opportunity to serve as a volunteer with Equest, I hereby forever release, acquit and
discharge Equest and its officers, directors, trustees, agents, employees, representatives, affiliates,
successors and assigns (collectively the "Released and Indemnified Parties") from any and all claims,
demands and causes of action of any and every kind or nature, including those caused in whole or in part
by the negligence of any of the Released and Indemnified Parties, which I may now or in the future have
against any or all of the Released and Indemnified Parties and that arise in whole or in part as a result of
my involvement with Equest. I also understand and agree that Equest assumes no liability for accidents or
acts of negligence or gross negligence by anyone, including the Releases and Indemnified Parties.
I further agree to fully indemnify and defend any of the Released and Indemnified Parties against any and
all claims, demands or causes of action of any and every kind or nature (including attorney's fees and
other defense costs), including those caused in whole or in part by the negligence of any or all of the
Released and Indemnified Parties, which directly or indirectly relate to personal injuries or property
damages sustained by me and that arise in whole or in part as a result of my involvement with Equest. If
any provision of this Statement is determined to be unenforceable, all other provisions shall remain in full
force and effect.
