What is a Waiver?
A waiver is a document you must sign at the beginning of each season before you ride with Hillsboro Hounds. Also called a “Release”, it simply states you understand and assume the risks of riding while releasing the landowner of liability if you, or your horse, are injured.
Why are there two different waivers? Each one pertains to the land ridden over while hunting. One, covers Hillsboro Hounds land, which is our primary hunt country; and two, covers Cedar Knob Hounds land, over which we’ve graciously been given permission to hunt.
Waivers are mailed out prior to each season in the “invitation to hunt with us” packet. Current members know the following routine. New or aspiring members – please sign each waiver and mail them back to the Secretary along with your information sheet and dues in the self-addressed-stamped envelope provided.
Whether during the preseason or the formal season, if you arrive at your first meet realizing you’ve not turned in your waivers, please see one of the Staff members or Masters. Any of them will guide you to the Hunt Truck where you can sign the waivers before you mount.
