This Western trail ride on horseback crosses the Oregon Cascade mountain range, US Forest Service and U. S. Bureau of Land Management lands, as well as privately owned forest lands, trails, and public roadways. I am aware that there are risks that are inherent in equine (horseback) activities, and I am aware of risks inherent in wilderness travel. I understand that a participant in this Horse Trek could be injured as a result of unanticipated actions by a horse which include but are not limited to jumping, kicking, biting, and colliding with other animals or objects and falling on or throwing a rider. I understand that while riding horses it is possible to fall off under circumstances which can result in serious injury. I am aware that in the course of wilderness travel, medical attention may be delayed and, from some locations in the course of the trip, I understand that summoning medical attention and wilderness evacuation can further delay medical care. I understand that the leaders of the Horse Trek will do the best they can to create a safe and enjoyable experience for all participants. Equestrian helmets are provided. However, we understand that notwithstanding the best efforts of those leading the Horse Trek, unforeseen circumstances can arise. As a participant, I understand that I must, and agree to, follow the instructions and requests of Horse Trek leaders at all times. I understand that the choices I make and judgments that I exercise will affect my safety, and could affect the safety of others. As the parent of participant, I acknowledge my son or daughter is able to participate responsibly in the activities. I understand that Oregon law states that the Cascade Pacific Council, the Boy Scouts of America and its employees and volunteers involved in leading this Horse Trek shall not be liable for an injury to or the death of a participant arising out of riding, training, driving, grooming, or riding as a passenger upon an equine (horse). That no participant or participant s representative may maintain an action (lawsuit) against or recover from an equine activity sponsor or an equine professional for an injury to or the death of a participant arising out of riding, training, driving, grooming, or riding as a passenger upon an equine.
