RENTAL AGREEMENT APPENDIX

INSURANCE

My civil responsibility insurance is only implicated in the case of an unforgivable fault on my part.

All persons accompanying the treks with animals are not taken into account by my insurance, nor the children that ride.

The transportation of a child on an animal is made under full responsibility of the accompanying adults; this activity is not equitation but transport.

It is thus asked of the trekkers to have personal insurance for accidents and that they accept general civil responsibility.

Art.1384 du code civil : « On est responsable non seulement du dommage que l’on cause par son propre fait, mais encore de celui qui est causé par le fait des personnes dont on doit répondre, ou des choses que l’on a sous sa garde. »

Art.1385 du code civil : « Le propriétaire d’un animal, ou celui qui s’en sert pendant qu’il est à son usage, est responsable du dommage que l’animal a causé, soit que l’animal fût sous sa garde, soit qu’il fût égaré ou échappé. »

SAFETY

  1. Animals must be held on a tether by an adult.
  2. Never wrap the tether around your hand, but hold it folded on itself with the knot at the end.
  3. Walk in front of your animal, or side by side, he doesn’t have to overtake you.
  4. During the crossing of a ford or difficult passage, hold your animal at the end of the tether near the knot and place yourself far in front of him (he can decide to jump).
  5. If a child rides an animal, he has to wear a helmet, he must dismount during any delicate passages (road, ford, hole in the ground, steep and slippery slope…) and must not be left alone riding the animal, even during a break.
  6. During a break, attach your animal to a solid support and make sure he doesn’t get stuck, or roll on the ground with his luggage. Unburden your animal of its bags but leave the packsaddle. Before restarting, don’t forget to check the packsaddle, mats, belts, and the distribution of the weight.
  7. Pay attention to blows that the animal can give with their hoof or tail when they chase away insects.
  8. Take care when you encounter another animal, don’t let it sniff and approach your animal.

NAMELY

At departure, avoid being too soft with the animal, show your animal that you know the rules and that you are leading him and not the other way round.

Say “YEP!” to move forward and “O-LA!” to stop your animal.

If you let your animal eat all along the way, he will constantly drop his head down and you won’t be able to lead him anymore.

If your animal stops, check that nothing is wrong (packsaddle, a missing companion, he wants to relieve himself…) and ask him to restart “YEP!”

  • Respect your animal and he will respect you.
