Horse riding over man made and other obstacles is an inherently dangerous activity and all reasonable care and precautions must be taken by each rider to ensure that all riders, spectators, horses and property are not injured or damaged.
The Committee confirm that they have inspected the course and fences and have exercised reasonable care in satisfying themselves that the fences are safe and secure prior to making the course and fences available for inspection but except in respect of death or personal injury caused by the Committee’s negligence no responsibility is accepted by the Committee for any damage to persons, horses or property howsoever caused which should arise from
a) Defects in the course of fences not notified to the Committee by the rider
b) Defects in the course or fences which manifest themselves after the course or fences are made available for inspection
During the course of an event it is possible that the fences or course may become less safe and secure. All riders shall be under a continuing duty to notify to the Committee any damage which they cause to, or notice in, any fence or the course during the event and to notify any defects to the Committee as it not possible for the Committee to inspect each fence and the course after every rider has completed the course or any part of it.
The Committee shall be under no liability in respect of any damage caused to any person, horse or property howsoever caused including any defect in the course or fences arising from fair wear and tear, wilful damage, negligence of any rider or others, or abnormal weather conditions, failure to follow the Committee’s or any official’s instructions (whether verbal or written) or the rulers.
