I have some questions and was hoping someone can help me out since I am fairly new with the equestrian world. I board my horse at a stable since I do not own property. Everyone who rides at this stable is required to sign a waiver to ensure everyone understands riding is at your own risk. Anyone under 18 is required to wear a helmet and if over 18 a waiver can be signed if you decide you don’t want to wear a helmet. I fully understand this concept due the risks and liability involved and agree with it 100%. There are a few advanced young riders at my stable and I was thinking of allowing one of them to ride my horse periodically when we are away such as a vacation or busy weekends. This will not be any type of share boarding since I figure they get to ride and my horse gets experience with different and more advanced riders. My horse if very calm and pretty much a beginner family type. Do I need to have anyone who rides my horse sign a waiver even though it’s not my property and a waiver already exists with the stable? Also does anyone know about riders insurance policies? I overheard someone talking about it and tried looking for info on the internet but didn’t get far. Do they cover accident and injury to the rider/owner? Anything you can tell me will be greatly appreciated.
