EQUINE SERVICE AGREEMENT 
AND HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY

CLAIRE EATON PHOTOGRAPHY 
Fine Art Photography Sessions In Collaboration With PAT Ponies (Party & Therapy Ponies)

SAFETY MEASURES

I.    Two horse handlers from PAT Ponies will be present during the session to ensure maximum safety. 
II.    Please note that the handler’s instructions must be followed at all times by both children and parents. 
III.    If potential danger arises due to safety instructions being disregarded, the organisers may use reasonable judgment in declining to permit guests to come near the Equines and withhold the right to discontinue the photo session to avoid distress or injury. 
IV.    These sessions are not suitable for children who are nervous around large animals. 
V.    These sessions are not suitable for children under 4 years of age.
VI.    The welfare of both the child and the pony will be of the greatest importance at all times. 

SAFETY RULES

I.    Under no circumstances may any guest feed any Equine any item not explicitly authorized and supplied by Contractor. 
II.    At Contractor's discretion, guests may be permitted to pet the Equines during their photo session while the Equines are held by Contractor's handler. 
III.    Riding or sitting on the Equines is not permitted inside the studio due to health and safety rules. 
IV.    Safety Attire must be considered during the photo sessions. Equines often weigh 1,000 pounds or more and therefore can easily break bones by inadvertently stepping on guests' feet. Therefore, Contractor requires that each guest coming near the Equines must wear enclosed shoes (e.g., no bare feet, flip flops or sandals). 

LIABILITY RELEASE WAIVER 

I.    Both Claire Eaton Photography and the Contractor do everything in their power to ensure against an incident or accident with a child and pony occurring, whilst serving parents and their children in photography sessions. 
II.    We do ask that you please understand that there is some risk involved, just like allowing your child to swim in a pool or jump in a bouncy castle or on a trampoline, driving in a car, or riding their bike in the street, and even when they go to school. We believe in informing parents, any company who does not tell you everything is hiding something. This is a typical release warning/waiver that you would read and/or sign if you were to go on a guided trekking ride, or take riding lessons, or even go to some show grounds where horses are! Don’t let this scare you.
III.    Two pony handlers shall be provided on set, their directions for safety concerning the animal and potential risk to persons must be listened and adhered to at all times. 
IV.    Both Claire Eaton Photography and the Contractor (PAT Ponies) assume no responsibility for any damage to property or equipment, or personal injury caused by any of the ponies.
V.    Risk assessments shall be carried out for new themes and sets created beforehand to assess any potential risks before pony and child come together. All reasonable precautions will be taken to ensure safety.

CUSTOMER'S INDEMNIFICATION AGREEMENT 

I.    Customer agrees to defend, indemnify and hold Claire Eaton Photography, Contractor and Contractor's owners, officers, directors, family members, employees and agents (collectively, the "Contractor Parties") harmless against all claims, demands and causes of action, including costs and attorneys' fees, directly or indirectly arising from any action or other proceedings brought by or prosecuted for the benefit of Customer or any of Customer's heirs, successors, assigns, guests, employees, family members or agents (collectively, the "Customer Parties") or brought by others against the Contractor Parties in connection with services performed pursuant to this Agreement, or any action or inaction taken by the Customer Parties.
