(See Travel Insurance)

EMERGENCY CANCELLATION. In case of emergency cancellations prior to the start of your trip, you may request that payments be applied to trips in the same or the succeeding year, or transferred to another party that you identify, which will be at HorseWorks' discretion and based on availability. No refund, transfer, or substitution is given once a session has started or to people who leave mid-trip for any reason. (See Travel Insurance)

DATE CHANGES. You may only change your trip dates after booking subject to availability at HorseWorks' discretion.

TRAVEL INSURANCE (TRIP INSURANCE) that covers ALL the costs of your trip is strongly recommended in case of cancellation as HorseWorks has a no-refund policy.  Travel insurance is the responsibility of and at the discretion of the participant.  Travel insurance that covers all the costs of your trip is strongly recommended in case your trip is canceled for any reason.

HELMET POLICY.  Helmets are strongly recommended, and all participants are encouraged to wear helmets, as per Certified Horsemanship Association guidelines.  Participants should bring their own helmets to ensure a safe fit and good hygiene (See Packing List).  Participants over 18 years of age who decline to wear a helmet must sign HorseWorks' Helmet Liability Release as per Certified Horsemanship Association guidelines prior to participating in any activities.

HEALTH & ACCIDENT INSURANCE: Participants must have health and accident insurance that is valid in Wyoming and covers extensive horseback riding for the extended period of their stay on the ranch.  Be aware that your insurance may require that you wear a riding helmet, and may be invalid if you do not wear a helmet.   Be prepared to show proof of insurance.  Participants without insurance will be asked to leave.

LIABILITY. State of Wyoming Equine Activity Statute. WARNING: Wyo Stat. s 1-1-123 (1994) s 1-1-123. Assumption of Risk. Any person who takes part in any sport or recreational opportunity assumes the inherent risk of injury and all legal responsibility for damage, injury or death to himself or other persons or property that results from the inherent risks in that sport or recreational opportunity.

ITINERARIES are subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control, such as weather, rainfall and grass conditions.

POCKET MONEY. Participants should bring an additional $400-$500 pocket money for off-ranch activities provided by local operators and decided on by the group upon arrival. These expenses may include a rental car for going to off-ranch activities (we will make one trip a week to Cody for guests to pick up a rental car) and trips to Yellowstone National Park, white water rafting, rodeos, and other local attractions.
