Volunteer Liability Release
As a volunteer at Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center, I acknowledge the risks and potential for risk of horseback riding program. However, I feel that the possible benefits to me and the clients with which I work are greater than the risk assumed. I hereby, intending to be legally bound for myself, my heirs and assigns, executors of administrators, waive and release forever all claims for damages against Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center, its Board of Directors, instructors, therapists, volunteers and/or employees for any and all injuries and/or losses I may sustain while participating at the Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center. I further release FETC for any actions of its Board of Directors, instructors, therapists, volunteers and/or employees occurring outside the scope of the program itself, including but not limited to transportation, care, giving, horse exercising, etc.
I also assume the risks and agree to release and hold harmless the Twin Pines Farm, Veronica (Bonnie) Rachael and her heirs from any liability for injuries to me while at the Twin Pines Farm.
I understand that UNDER GA LAW, AN EQUINE ACTIVITY SPONSOR OR EQUINE PROFESSIONAL IS NOT LIABLE FOR AN INJURY TO OR THE DEATH OF A PARTICIPANT IN AN EQUINE ACTIVITY RESULTING FROM AN INHERENT RISK OF EQUINE ACTIVITY, PURSUANT TO ARTICLE 7, CHAPTER 9 OF TITLE 47, CODE OF LAWS OF GA.
As a volunteer at FETC, I agree to follow the rules and guidelines in this or any following editions of the FETC Volunteer Handbook. I have read or have had the Volunteer Handbook explained to me, and I will keep the current edition for reference. I will attend continuing education training/volunteer classes once a year (or more often if required by FETC) throughout my volunteer service. I understand that violating the rules and guidelines at FETC may result in my dismissal from the program. If my contact information changes, I will notify the volunteer coordinator as soon as possible.
I understand that the staff at FETC, including instructors and administrators, is in control of the activities that I participate in and I will follow their direction. I understand that from time to time the guidelines or rules may change and that it is the responsibility of the FETC staff to inform me of those changes in a timely manner.
Unfortunately, volunteering at a Therapeutic Riding Center is not an appropriate activity for everybody and we occasionally have to decline or discontinue services to those who do not follow and respect the policies at FETC. If a volunteer does not abide by the Volunteer Handbook and/or Center Policy as outlined in the Handbook and supporting documentation, that volunteer will be excused from volunteering at Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center. Instances may involve continual inappropriate attire, unsafe behaviors that jeopardize self and others, inappropriate language and actions, misuse of center property and horses, disrespect of riders and/or staff, betrayal of center confidential information as well as continual disregard for authority. These are only examples and not to be considered a complete list of offenses that would constitute a discharge/dismissal from FETC.
I acknowledge that all FETC riders & their families have a right to privacy that gives them control over the dissemination of medical and other sensitive information. I agree to keep confidential all such medical, social and personal information.
By signing below, I understand and agree to all of Faith Equestrian’s policies as stated in the Volunteer Handbook and listed above.
I declare that the information provided above is accurate to the best of knowledge. I know of no reason I should not participate in this operating center’s program. I understand the responsibilities listed in the job description and agree to fulfill those responsibilities. I also understand that occasionally, due to an unforeseen circumstance, I may be called upon to fulfill the responsibilities of other positions within the program.
Volunteers are encouraged to promote Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center in the community. However, I understand that no volunteer may represent, commit or obligate Faith Equestrian Therapeutic Center without the express permission of the Executive Director, Program Director or other individuals as designated by the Board of Directors.
