A rider sued at one of our rides in Alberta snactioned under ERA which has been arround for over 25 years.
She named 2 of the voluntters as well as a bunch of others. Walked her stallion up the butt of a gelding being ponied on a lead line with a 6 year old riding. Gelding even had a ribbon in tail.
Well lets just say that the ride manager has not put on rides since
Volunteers quit working rides AND somehow that person is still around causeing S*&t cause no one could figure out how to get her out of the club. \Never thought a rule would be needed for that one I guess.

I don't know the legal answer to that question, but I would think that suing a ride manager would spell the end to endurance riding.  I know that if someone sued us, whether or not we were found guilty, I would never put on another ride...period.  This is a SPORT, and people take risks all the time in sports.  It is not the ride manager's responsibility to make it 100% safe for all riders.  Take normal precautions to make it safe...yes...but after that, the risk is assumed by the rider.
Now if the rider was suing because of some presumed disappointment or annoyance with ride management, that is beyond ridiculous.  Buck up and act like a mature person.

Just curious, if a RM was sued and found "guilty," would the RM's AERC insurance policy through Equisure pay or could the RM also be personally liable?  If so, would their home owner's policy pick up the tab?
