I hereby agree and acknowledge that agricultural recreation or agritourism activities, including riding or driving all-terrain vehicles or other motorized vehicles, participating in equine activities, hunting, shooting, hiking, swimming, diving, tubing, and/or participating in rodeo and livestock activities (collectively, the “Agricultural Recreation Activities”) are potentially hazardous activities, possibly resulting in serious bodily injury or death. I acknowledge that my engaging in any Agricultural Recreation Activities either on my own or with a professional subjects me to risks, both known and unknown. Those risks include, but are not limited to, the inherent risks of the Agricultural Recreation Activities as well as other risks and dangers, including equipment failure, collisions with natural or man-made objects or other persons, falling off of the motorized vehicle or horse or the horse falling, behavior of the horse or other wild or domestic animals, drowning, the limitations of my own physical condition, the consumption of food or beverage, acts of God, the negligent and reckless acts or omissions of others or of JW Cattle Ranch, its officers, agents, directors and shareholders, members, managers, partners, employees, subcontractors or independent instructors (collectively with JW Cattle Ranch, the “Protected Parties”), and/or the forces of nature (the “Risks”). I further acknowledge that the above list is not inclusive of all possible risks associated with the Agricultural Recreation Activities, and that the above list in no way limits the extent or reach of this Release, Waiver, Indemnification and Hold Harmless Agreement (this “Agreement”).
