A Gallop into the World of Digital Waivers Frees Up the Reins at Ranches and Riding Stables
By: Resmark Systems
Gone are the days of sorting out who has/has not signed a paper waiver and then managing the barrage of signed paper waivers that have to be sorted and stored.
The go-to company for the latest trend in equine liability waiver (https://www.waiversign.com/
In his early raft guiding days, "We would carry our hard copy liability release form to river's edge as part of our orientation talk." The downside of this strategy was that in a court of law the river's edge signing process could be construed as coercion: "Sign now, or you don't get on the river."
He explains that WaiverSign provides a stronger legal basis. Someone who is considering a booking has immediate access to the waiver and can sign online as part of the reservation process prior to arrival at the ranch.
"They cannot argue that they had no time to read or that they were under duress. They have easy access to release forms. The digital system totally abolishes the argument that they didn't know what it was," he explains.
Near Seattle in Port Orchard, WA, the horse stables known as The Whole Horse Place focus on helping ages six to grandparents understand horses as well as the safety protocols that make animal and human interactions more enjoyable. Waivers are among its administrative protocols. WaiverSign's digital technology has been in place since February 2022.
On the Brazos River in Satin, Texas, 25 minutes from Waco, the 600-acre Moon River Ranch can sleep over 250 guests. Activities include horseback riding, kayaking, skeet shooting, axe throwing and exotic animal safaris. Each activity requires a liability waiver.
Before signing onto WaiverSign in the summer of 2021, the ranch used old forms printed and physically signed. "Now liability and contracts get signed with one stroke of the keyboard instead of 5,000 pieces of paper floating around. On a ranch there aren't a lot of places to put paper," says Cayla Pagels, spokeswoman.
Founded in 2013, WaiverSign offers one of the most efficient, easy-to-use digital liability waivers and electronic liability release solutions available in today's marketplace. An API (Application Programming Interface) allows other reservation and customer relationship databases to push and pull customer data directly to and from WaiverSign.
