      DISCLAIMER FORM AND TERMS & CONDITIONS OF USE

      These rules are important to help ensure everyone’s safety. We want you to have a great time at Bissell Wood Estate’s XC course and jump arena, but be aware that horse riding, particularly XC riding and jumping, is a high risk sport. You are responsible for your own safety while using the XC course and jump arena.

      Please carefully read this disclaimer form and its terms & conditions. By signing this you are stating and agreeing to the following:

      accidents, injury, illness, loss or damage to any riders, horses, owners, spectators, property, vehicles and any other belongings whatsoever or however caused.


      I will at all times while mounted wear:

      • suitable footwear with defined heels
      • a riding hat (correctly fastened, no fixed peak) meeting the current British Horse Society (BHS) standard
      • a body protector meeting the current BHS standard

      I agree and confirm that:

      • all riders will be accompanied (either mounted or on foot)
      • no riders under the age of 8 are allowed to use the XC course or jump arena and all riders between the age of 8 and 18 need to be accompanied by an adult

      that I will only attempt jumps that are within my and my horse’s ability and experience.


      I agree to be considerate to other horses, riders and spectators at all times and will only jump one horse at a time per fence. If riding in pairs or as a group, I agree horses will NOT jump abreast of each

      By signing this disclaimer form, I agree to abide by the terms & conditions set out above. I accept that I ride and use the XC course and jump arena entirely at my own risk and take full responsibility for the actions and safety of myself, my horse, persons under 18 years old and spectators that accompany me.
