I. PROTECTIVE HEADGEAR AND ATTIRE WARNING I AGREE THAT: I for myself and on behalf of my child and/or legal ward have been fully warned and advised by THIS STABLE that protective headgear which meets or exceeds the quality standards of the SEI CERTIFED ASTM STANDARD F 1163 Equestrian Helmet, should be purchased and worn while riding and being near horses and I do understand that the wearing of such headgear at these times may reduce severity of some of the wearer’s head injuries and possibly prevent the wearer’s death from happening as the result of a fall and other occurrences. Horse handlers and riders should wear hard, smooth, full-soled boots or shoes that cover the ankle and have at least 1 inch heels. Such boots or shoes provide protection for the feet in the event a horse steps on a foot, and also to assist in preventing the foot from slipping all the way through the stirrup and becoming caught while riding, mounting, dismounting, and/or other occurrences. Horse handlers and riders should wear ankle length, flexible or moderately loose fitting pants to protect legs, and riders should also consider wearing equestrian pants, breeches, or jodhpurs, which have leather inner knee/calf patches, or chaps that provide inner leg grip and added stability in the saddle.
