Code of Laws of South Carolina), (see links page for more in formation on this Statue). Client providing the activity their

A. Registration of Riders and Agreement Purpose in consideration of the applicable fee and the signing-of this
agreement. I, the following listed individual, or the parent or legal guardian thereof a minor, do hereby voluntarily
request and agree to participate in horseback riding instruction given by Janet Menetrier.
Name (list names of each student/and Non Riding Visitor)_________________________________________________________________
Telephone Number (Home)______________________(Work)____________________________(Cell)____________________________________
B. Agreement and Territory and Definitions: This agreement shall be legally binding upon me the registered
student, and the parents or legal guardian thereof if a minor my heirs, estate, assigns, including all minor children, and
personal representative: and-it shall be interpreted according to the laws of the Sate of North Carolina. If any clause,
phrase or word is in conflict with the state Law, then that single part will be null and void. The term " Horse"
herein-shall refer to riding or otherwise handling of horses, ponies, or donkeys, whether from the ground or mounted. The
Terms "student" and/or "Rider"shall herein refer to one who rides a horse mounted or otherwise
handles or comes near a horse from the ground. The terms "I", "ME", "MY" shall herein refer

Risk Classification: I understand that: Horseback riding is classified as a RUGGED ADVENTURE RECREATIONAL SPORT ACTIVITY,
and that there are numerous obvious and non-obvious inherent risks always present in such activity despite all safety precautions.
D. Nature of Horses: I understand that: Janet Menetrier
chooses its lesson horses for their calm disposition and sound basic training as is required for use for student riders, and
Janet Menetrier follows a rigid safety program. Yet, no riding horse is a completely safe horse. Horses are 5 - 15 times larger,
20 - 40 times more powerful, and 3-4 times faster than a human. If a rider falls from a horse to the ground it will generally
be a distance of from 3.5 to 5.5 feet, and the impact may result in injury to the rider. Horseback riding is the only sport
where one much smaller, weaker predator animal (human) tries to impose its will on, and become one unit of movement with,
another much larger, stronger prey animal with a mind of is own (horses) and each has a limited understanding of the other.
If a horse is frightened or provoked it may divert from its training and act according to its natural survival instincts which
may include, but are not limited to: Stopping short, changing direction or speed at will, shifting its weight, bucking, rearing
kicking, biting, or running from danger.
E. Rider Responsibility: I understand that: Upon mounting a horse and taking up the reins the rider
is in primary control of the horse. The rider's safety largely depends upon his/her ability to carry out simple instructions
and his/her ability to remain balanced aboard the moving animal. I agree that the rider shall be responsible for his/her own
safety, including that of a unborn child. Should the rider be injured they would be taken to the nearest hospital/facility
for treatment. By signing this agree you agree with our terms. ______________________________(int-ital)
of Nature and Inspection of Premises: I understand that: Janet Menetrier is NOT responsible for total or partial acts, occurrences,
or elements of nature that can scare a horse, cause it to fall, or react in some other unsafe way. Some examples are: Thunder,
lightening, rain, wind wild or domestic animals, insects, reptiles, which may walk, run, or fly near,or bite or sting a horse
or person, and irregular footing on out of door groomed or wild land which is subject to constant change in condition according
to weather, temperature, and natural and man-made changes in landscape. the rider or parent or legal guardian have inspected
the facilities, as per the stable, etc. and are satisfied that all premise conditions are reasonable safe for rider's intended
G. Saddles girth/natural lessening: I understand that: The saddle girth (saddle fasteners around
the horse's belly)may loosen during a ride. If a rider notices this, he/she must alert the riding instructor as quickly as
possible so action can be taken to avoid slippage of the saddle and a potential fall from the animal.
Insurance: I agree that: Should emergency medical treatment be required, I and/ or my own accident/medical insurnce company
shall pay for all such incurred expenses.
I. Liability Release: I agree that: In consideration of Janet Menetrier, allowing my participation
in this activity, under the terms set forth herein, I, the rider, and the parent or guardian thereof if a minor do agree to
hold harmless and release Janet Menetrier, its owners, agents, employees, officers, members, students, premises owners, affiliated
organizations, and insurers from legal liability, and I do further agree that I shall bring no claims, demands, actions and
causes of actions, and /or litigation, against Janet Menetrier and is associates as stated above in this clause, for any economic
and non-economic losses due to bodily injury, death, property damage, sustained by me and / or my minor child or legal ward
in relation to the premises and Janet Meneterier, to include while riding, handling,
