Waivers should be completed by anyone at your Show who is:

* competing in horse events

* responsible for handling animals

* competing in physical activities such as rodeo, Wife Carrying, demolition derby, wood chop, young farmers' challenge, chainsaw racing, hay stacking, etc. 


We have created a single waiver that covers all these activities.  You can either use the individual version of this waiver or a bulk entrants version is also available.

Our waivers are FILLABLE PDFs.  If you are unsure how to use FILLABLE PDFs, please refer to the information documents below:  one for Show Societies and one for Competitors.
