Since the use of firearms and/or horses can be dangerous, all shooters and people entering the area assume all risk by signing this release.
I, __________________________________________, hereby acknowledge that I have voluntarily applied to participate in the sport of “mounted shooting”, and assume the unavoidable risks inherent in all horse-related activities, including but not limited to bodily injury and physical harm to horse, rider and spectator. I acknowledge that horse related activities are dangerous and that horses themselves have unpredictable temperaments which can sometimes cause injury.
As lawful consideration of being permitted to enter upon the premises upon which this event is conducted and of being permitted to participate in these activities or otherwise use the facilities, I KNOWLINGLY ASSUME THE UNAVOIDABLE RISKS INHERENT IN ALL MOUNTED SHOOTING-RELATED ACTIVITIES, WHETHER KNOWN OR UNKNOWN, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO BODILY INJURY TO HORSE, RIDER AND SPECTATOR, AND PROPERTY DAMAGE, AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING ON BEHALF OF MYSELF AND MY SPOUSE AND FAMILY, IF ANY:
I HEREBY RELEASE, WAIVE AND DISCHARGE AND CONVENANT TO NOT SUE, MAKE A CLAIM AGAINST THE PROPERTY OF OR OTHERWISE PROSECUTE THE OWNERS OF THE FACILITY USED FOR COMPETITIONS OR ACTIVITIES, THE CALIFORNIA RANGE RIDERS, STEVE HOLLAND, THEIR AGENTS, EMPLOYEES, MEMBERS OR REPRESENTATIVES (KNOWN COLLECTIVELY AS “RELEASEES”) FROM ALL ACTIONS, CLAIMS OR DAMAGE RESULTING FROM MY PARTICIPATION IN ANY EQUINE RELATED ACTIVITIES, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO RIDING, TRAINING, PARTICIPATION, USE OF FIREARMS, WHETHER CAUSED FROM THE PASSIVE OR ACTIVE NEGLIGENCE OF RELEASEES OR OTHERWISE WHILE THE UNDERSIGNED IS PARTICIPATING IN OR OBSERVING THE SPORTING OR RELATED ACTIVITIES ON THE PREMISES OF THE HOFFMAN'S ARENA, 11342 Merced Ave, Turlock, Ca 95380
I also expressly waive any rights that I may have under California Civil Code 1542, which states: “A general release does not extend to claims which the creditor does not know or suspect to exist in her/his favor at the time of executing the release, which if known by her/him must have materially affect her settlement with her/his debtor.”
I agree that I will DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS RELEASES AGAINST ALL CLAIMS DEMANDS, AND CAUSES OF ACTIONS, INCLUDING COURT COSTS AND ACTUAL ATTORNEY’S FEES, ARISING FROM ANY PROCEEDING OR LAWSUIT BROUGHT AGAINST THEM DUE TO ANY ACT DONE BY ME OR MY HORSE(S) OR FIREARM(S) OR GUESTS, OR BROUGHT BY ME OR FOR MY BENEFIT, ARISING FROM PARTICIPATION IN ANY EQUESTRIAN OR FIREARM RELATED ACTIVITIES ON THE AFOREMENTIONED PREMISES. IF ANY LAWSUIT IS BROUGHT AGAINST THE RELEASEES, I AGREE THAT ALL PROCEEDINGS MUST TAKE PLACE IN THE COUNTY OF SANTA CLARA.
This agreement is binding on my executors, heirs and assigns. It contains the entire agreement among the parties. It shall be construed, enforced with and governed by the laws of the State of California.
