In the event a minor, whether it be participant, participant's children or other individuals using the property with participant(s) hereinafter referred to as "minor"), is injured and/killed and /or suffers loss of property while engaging in activities on the property, participant(s) specifically agrees to indemnify and hold harmless injury, death, or property damages or other losses, claims, causes of action, or other costs resulting or arising in any manner or way from said minor's participation in or attendance at any such activities on the property. To the extent necessary to indemnify and hold harmless PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC AND/OR JOHN AND CAT PARKS in the event of injury or death as a result of a minor, participant specifically agrees to waive any applicable statute of limitation. Visitor's obligation to indemnify PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC AND/OR JOHN AND CAT PARKS includes, but is not limited to, paying for counsel of PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC AND/OR JOHN AND CAT PARKS choosing to defend against any claim arising out of participants or said minor's use of the property. In the event it is necessary to refer this Agreement to an attorney, the prevailing party in such action shall be entitled to its costs and reasonable attorney fees. Venue of any action involving this Agreement shall be in Hamilton County, Texas. Knowing the inherent risks, dangers and rigors involved in the PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC AND/OR JOHN AND CAT PARKS activities, I certify that I and any minor children of mine are fully capable of participation in all activities. I assume full responsibility for myself and my minor children for bodily injury, death, loss of personal property and expenses thereof, as a result of my negligence or the negligence of my children. I further understand the concessionaire reserves the right to refuse any person it judges to be incapable if meeting the rigors and requirements of participation in the PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC AND/OR JOHN AND CAT PARKS activities. I have read, understand and accept the terms and conditions stated herein and acknowledge that this agreement shall be effective and binding upon us during the entire period of participation in the activities.

However, I accept full responsibility for medical expenses incurred as a result of the minor's participation in or travel to and from PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC. I also agree to HOLD HARMLESS AND INDEMNIFY PARKS HORSEMANSHIP LLC and/or JOHN AND CAT PARKS for any claims brought by the minor.
