Part III: Suzanne Jones and Yvonne Ocrant Discuss Transferring Equine Liability Risk by using Indemnity Agreements

March 20, 2018

In the third and final part of the series on legal issues facing the Minnesota horse industry, Hinshaw partners Suzanne Jones and Yvonne Ocrant discuss how to protect yourself against liability by using the risk-transfer mechanism of an indemnity agreement. The article is titled "Transferring Your Equine Liability Risk to Another Party," and appears in the University of Minnesota Equine Extension Newsletter and Farm Forum.

Jones and Ocrant suggest using indemnity agreements alongside a written release of liability. They provide terms and conditions they recommend including in written liability waivers to allow for greater liability limits and protections.
