The Texas Legislature has added a chapter to the Civil Practice and Remedies Code to limit liabilities for equine activities, effective September 1, 1995.
Chapter 87 of the code says there is no liability for property damage arising from personal injury or death of a participant in an equine activity, if the damage or injury results from a risk inherent in equine activities. Inherent risks include collisions with other animals, certain surface conditions, the unpredictability of an animal’s reaction to certain stimuli and potential of a participant to act in a negligent manner contributing to an injury.
I hereby understand that Jasper County Cowboy Church, it’s members, and all others persons and organizations connected with this Church or Arena are not to be held responsible for any injuries which I or my horse may incur while participating in this Arena event, or as a result thereof. I hereby waive any claims for damages to my person or property.
