NY EQUINE INHERENT RISK SIGNAGE
New York State recently enacted “The Safety in Agricultural Tourism Act,”
a law which offers protection for operators of indoor and outdoor equine
activities, such as horse farms, boarding and training facilities, and stable
owners, from claims of injury or death resulting from foreseeable or
inherent risks associated with equine activities. These risks include falling
off, being bucked off, being kicked, bitten, or stepped on.
The law protects these facilities and operators ONLY IF THEY HAVE
POSTED THE APPROPRIATE SIGNAGE ON THEIR PROPERTY. The
minimum signage required to comply consists of THREE SEPARATE
SIGNS for posting, PLUS A PRINTED HANDOUT, which we are offering
as a “rack card” with an accompanying Plexiglas holder. Additionally,
“directional” signage is included in your package (i.e. Do Not Enter, Do Not
Feed or Touch the Horses) and other à la carte signs are available to
supplement your warnings.
