So should I have a liability release waiver ready and have her sign it? I’ve signed them at about every barn I’ve ever set foot in, even barns that already have insurance against that sort of thing. My hubby said that it is covered in the homeowners insurance. Would having a stack of waivers in the barn and have everyone sign them when they ride be a good idea? I don’t want to think my friends would sue…but we do live in a world full of stupid lawsuits! Any light on this topic is greatly appreciated!

I have a friend who wants to come out and ride with me this weekend. She isn’t the most experienced rider in the world but she has ridden before. I’m still not sure if she wants to go down the road or just ride around the yard but I will obviously put her on Piney since he’s a babysitter of a horse. So question is, do I have her sign a liability release? I trust Piney more than I trust most people, but he is a horse, and he has hurt me before. Obviously I’d never ask my friend to load him into a trailer, so I’m not too worried about her getting in the same predicament I was in. But still, it is spring, and who knows he might be frisky and do something stupid. Unlikely, but stranger things have happened!
