In consideration of being allowed to participate in the Billings Barrel Racing Series’ (the “BBRS”) sanctioned events as a member, participant, contestant or volunteer of the BBRS, I and my heirs, successors, personal representatives and next of kin hereby RELEASE, WAIVE, DISCHARGE and agree to HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY the BBRS, its related committees, contractors, sponsors, arena operators or owners, their agents and representatives; BBRS Board of Directors and all of the BBRS Officers (collectively referred to as the “BBRS”) from all liability to me, and my personal representatives, heirs, successors and next of kin from any and all claims and liability for all loss or damage and any claim of damages on account of any injury or illness to my person, including death or damage to my property while I am participating in BBRS events held at its host arenas and/or facilities. I hereby represent to the BBRS that I understand THERE ARE CERTAIN RISKS OF SERIOUS INJURY, ILLNESS, AND/OR DEATH inherent in participating in barrel racing events, and in any related activities. I realize arena conditions change from time to time and may become more hazardous, that horses can be dangerous and unpredictable, and there is INHERENT DANGER in equine-related activities which I appreciate and voluntarily assume because I choose to participate in such events. I make this choice even though I have observed or participated in events of this kind in the past and know conditions, facilities, animals and other contestants and participants pose a danger to me. I recognize and expressly agree to assume the entire risk of any and all accidents or personal injury including serious paralysis or death, which I might suffer during my participation in said events. I hereby release the sponsors, their officers, members, and co-sponsors at all BBRS events from any claim or right for damages which may occur to my horse or me. I also assume and accept full responsibility for any damages done by me or my horse at all BBRS events. I further COVENANT AND AGREE NOT TO SUE the BBRS for any injury, damage(s) or death(s) which occur as a result of participation in said events and any claim or damage therefore. I understand that this document may be treated as a complete defense to any legal action I might bring against the BBRS for any injuries or other damages I might suffer. I understand and agree that this RELEASE AND AGREEMENT NOT TO SUE extends to any and all claims I may have, especially including, but not limited to, claims arising out of participation in said events, claims with respect to the design, manufacture, repair, or maintenance of the facilities or equipment which I will be using, or with respect to the conditions, qualifications, instructions, rules or procedures under which my uses of the said facilities or equipment are conducted, or from any other cause. I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THIS RELEASEAND AGREEMENT NOT TO SUE SHALL APPLY TO ANY INCIDENT, INJURY, ACCIDENT OR DEATH OCCURRING DURING THE TERM OF MY MEMBERSHIP IN THE BBRS. Any subsequent Release and Agreements I might sign in the future shall amplify, but shall in no way limit, the provision of this document. I further state and certify that I have carefully read the foregoing Release, know the contents thereof and sign this Release and Agreement Not to Sue as a free and voluntary act. I am not relying on any statements or representations of any party released hereby. I UNDERSTAND THIS IS A RELEASE OF ALL CLAIMS.
