Terms and Conditions

EQUESTRIAN BALANCE PTY LTD’S TRADING TERMS

 

These terms relate to the supply (including facilitation) of in person and on-line coaching services (‘Services’) as well as materials, videos and publications (‘Publications’) by Equestrian Balance Pty Ltd ABN 47 611 573 909 (‘We’, ‘Us’ and ‘Our’) to a customer (‘You’ and ‘Your’).

 

By submitting any order or making any booking for Services or Publications, You indicate to Us your acceptance of these terms.

 

Risk Warning:

A horse is a large, heavy, herd animal, a creature of flight and can react without warning. It has highly developed senses of hearing, sight and smell, which can cause it to react suddenly and unexpectedly to external stimuli (auditory and visual, real and perceived). These reactions can be potentially harmful to You.

 

Regardless of its size, weight, education or age, a horse can (amongst other behaviours) bite, bolt, buck, crush, tread, fall, jump, kick, pig-root, rear, roll, shy, slip, stop and turn, or stumble, while You are on, beside or near to the horse. As a consequence, You will be exposed, by interacting with a horse, to the possibility of death, permanent injury or disability (including spinal and brain damage) and moderate or minor harm from a fall (especially if riding without stirrups, a saddle or bridle or at speed), kick, drag, crush, bite or knock, even if You act safely and wear a riding helmet compliant with the safety requirements of current Australian Standards, and protective footwear, but especially if no such helmet or footwear is worn or if You are affected by drugs, alcohol, medication or an existing medical condition (including pregnancy).

 

You ride, handle and interact with a horse at your own risk.

 

Purpose of Services:

The purposes of the Services are to educate You to understand and apply learning theory and the use of positive reinforcement and to understand and evaluate a horse’s behaviour and the nuances of its body language to help You train, respond to and engage appropriately with Your horse (‘Purposes’).
