In recognition of the fact that I
will be working in a volunteer capacity with the Saddle Up! program to be
conducted either at the Saddle Up! facilities in Franklin, Tennessee, or at
another location for a Saddle Up! related event, recognizing that working with
and around horses is an inherently risky behavior, I hereby, intending to be
legally bound, for myself, my heirs and assigns, executors or administrators,
do hereby release, absolve, indemnify and hold harmless Saddle Up!, its
representatives, supervisors, directors, officers, employees, suppliers,
corporate sponsors or any other volunteers from any damages, injuries, claims,
suits or costs arising in any way out of the conduct of the activities of the
Saddle Up! program, including any injury which may occur at the Saddle Up!
facilities or in transit to or from the Saddle Up! facilities or related
events, except such liability or claim of liability as may result from gross
negligence on the part of Saddle Up!. I am executing this Release with a full
understanding that the Saddle Up! program will involve my working directly with
horses and individuals with disabilities.
Under Tennessee law, an equine professional is not liable
for an injury to or death of a participant in equine activities resulting from
the inherent risks of equine activities, pursuant to Tennessee Code Annotated,
Title 44, Chapter 20, Section 1.
