The Client fully understands that Trainer does not carry any insurance on any horses not owned by it for training or for any other purposes, whether public liability, accidental injury, theft, or equine mortality insurance and that all risks connected with training or for any other reason for which the horse(s) is in the possession of, and on the premises of Trainer are to be borne by the Client.
