Gemma Womersley UKCC Level 2 Coach

Horse Rider's Code of Conduct​

  • I understand that riding at any standard has inherent risk and that all horses may react unpredictably on occasions.

  • I may fall off and could be injured. I accept that risk.

  • I understand that instructions are given for my safety and agree to follow instructions given to me.

  • I understand that wearing an appropriate riding hat and body protector may reduce the severity of an injury should an

    accident happen and agree that I will always wear a riding hat while riding.

  • I understand it is my choice whether or not I wear a body protector.

  • I understand that my riding Instructor will make decisions based on information I give them and agree to always be honest

    and volunteer information about:
    my abilities and riding experience
    any previous riding accidents
    any medical condition(s) which may affect my ability to ride

  • I understand that competing carries enhanced risk over and above general riding and agree that if I chose to participate in any competition or event, it is up to me to ensure that I have the experience and ability to undertake the ridden tasks including any jumps which form part of it. If I am in any doubt, I will use my judgment and experience and not enter.

I confirm that to the best of my knowledge all of the above details are correct.


I have read the Horse Riders’ Code of Conduct 

I understand that riding at any standard has inherent risk that I may fall off and could be injured.

I accept that risk and agree that the Riding Instructor will not be liable for injury or damage to property unless it is caused by their negligence.


Where I am signing on behalf of a minor I have explained the Riders’ Code of Conduct to my child and we both accept the risk and agree that the Riding Instructor will not be liable for injury or damage to property unless it is caused by their negligence.

Data Protection Act 1998: Statement: I understand that the information I have given will be held in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 but may also be made available to Insurers and other concerned parties in the event of any injury or accident.
