I request permission to participate in Riding Lessons and or Day Camp at Skyrock Farm.
I fully understand that being around horses and horseback riding (which includes riding over fences, other obstacles, and sometimes rough terrain) are very dangerous activities.

In exchange for being permitted to participate in these activities, for myself, my heirs, guardians, and legal representatives, I release and agree not to make or bring any claim of any kind against Skyrock Farm, or its owners, volunteers, officers, directors, members, employees, or guests or any landowners, landholders or other persons making property available for Skyrock Farm, for any injury (including death), to me or any damage to my property whether from anyone’s negligence or not or any other cause, arising out of my participation in these dangerous horseback riding, day camp or related activities.
I also agree if anyone makes any claims because of any injury to me (including death), or for any damage to my property, I will keep all those released by this agreement free of any damages or costs because of those claims.
Under Minnesota law, the sponsor(s) of this livestock activity are not liable for an injury to or the death of a participant, or spectator in an unauthorized area, resulting from the inherent risks of livestock activities pursuant to Minnesota Stat. 604A.12.
