Equestrian Waivers and Signage

Equestrian Liability Waivers and Signage in the 50 States (USA) - revised 2017
– Waivers: pages 2-49
– Signage requirements: pages 50-60
The new combined "Waiver and Consent to Participate" forms are to be used at any SCA event in which Equestrian activities are held or such animals are present. They include the standard event waiver language and will be signed by everyone attending the SCA event. Signing a second waiver is no longer necessary.
Individual State Waivers: Alabama | Alaska | Arizona | Arkansas | Colorado | Connecticut | Delaware | Florida | Georgia | Hawaii | Idaho | Illinois | Indiana | Iowa | Kansas | Kentucky | Louisiana | Maine | Massachusetts | Michigan | Minnesota | Mississippi | Missouri | Montana | Nebraska | Nevada | New Hampshire | New Jersey | New Mexico | North Carolina | North Dakota | Ohio | Oklahoma | Oregon | Pennsylvania | Rhode Island | South Carolina | South Dakota | Tennessee | Texas | Utah | Vermont | Virginia | Washington | West Virginia | Wisconsin | Wyoming

If your state does not have a specific waiver, then use the Society Standard Waiver

All states must showcase the appropriate Warning signs on site, with at least one to be at the equestrian field and one at the event check-in location (i.e. Gate/Sign-In/Troll). These signs can be purchased online through appropriate vendors or created following the appropriate requirements.
Standard Society Warning Signs (one-inch high lettering; for those states NOT listed above)
print as four 11" x 17" pages
print as 30" x 44" poster (plotter required)
See pages 50-60 for Individual State-required warning signs.

About Waivers

Equestrian Waiver Policy Clarification

On Minor Waivers (July 1, 2007)
Any minor participating in Equestrian Activities must have their parent or legal guardian sign for the minor on the adult Equestrian waiver (general or State specific, whichever is used by adults at the event/practice). Where the waiver says "Legal name", write "<parent's name> as parent/legal guardian on behalf of <minor's name>", and then have the parent sign.
