To all taking part or observing Langholm Common Riding:
Whilst every care has been taken by the organising members and relevant landowners in facilitating these events, the landowners and members will not be held responsible for any injury to any person taking part in any way whatsoever in the event, nor liable for any damage or omissions of any participants or spectators.
It is the responsibility of those taking part, or their legal guardians in the case of minors, to ensure that participants have appropriate and adequate insurance cover for personal injury and third party liability cover, and that they all take reasonable steps to ensure their own safe participation in the events. In particular in relation to equestrian events, they are advised to ensure both they and their mount are suitable and competent, that riders wear appropriate clothing, including protective head gear, and that their horses tack is in good condition.
All spectators and unmounted participants attend the Common Riding at their own risk, and whilst every care has been taking by the organising members, they will not be held responsible for the acts or omissions of any mounted participant, unmounted participant, or other spectator.
Please note that the organising members reserve the right to refuse any person from participating in the event.
