Release of Liability: I, the undersigned, hereby release Renee Thompson and Chapter 2 Ranch, employees, and volunteers from any and all liability, claims, demands, damages, actions or causes of action, which are related to any injury, serious injury, or death that I or my animal(s) suffer while in the care, custody or control otherwise being handled by Renee Thompson or Chapter 2 Ranch. The claims released include, but are not limited to, negligence, negligent misrepresentation, negligent supervision, gross negligence, fraud, all express and implied warranties, breach of contract, and all other tort claims related to hauling, boarding, transport, riding and/or handling by Renee Thompson or Chapter 2 Ranch.

Under Texas Law (Chapter 87, Civil Practice and Remedies Code), a farm animal (an equine) professional is not liable for injury to or the death of a participant in Farm animal (equine) activities resulting from the inherent risks of farm animal (equine) activities.”

This liability waiver extends to, and shall be binding upon me, my successors, representatives, heirs, executors, assigns, or transferees.

Indemnification: I, the undersigned, fully recognize that there is risk involved in riding and/or otherwise handling horses. I therefore accept financial responsibility for any injury that I may cause either to myself or to any other person due to my own negligence. I further agree to indemnify and hold harmless Chapter 2 Ranch, Renee Thompson, her agents, employees, and volunteers for the injury, serious injury, or death of any person(s) and any property damage that may result from my negligence or intentional acts or omissions while riding and/or otherwise handling horse(s). Should Renee Thompson, her agents, employees, and/or volunteers be required to incur attorneys’ fees and costs to enforce this provision or agreement then I agree to reimburse them for such fees and costs.

Severability: I, the undersigned, hereby agree that should any word, sentence, clause, or portion of this Waiver and Release of Liability be held or construed to be illegal or unenforceable, then that word, sentence, clause or portion shall be struck and the remainder of this Waiver and Release of Liability shall remain enforceable.

Interpretation: I, the undersigned, agree that this document shall be liberally construed to effectuate full waiver and release of any liability for the benefit of Chapter 2 Ranch, Renee Thompson and her agents, employees and volunteers. Any ambiguity shall be resolved in favor of finding waiver of claims and release of liability.
