Proper Use and Trailer Contents:
Upon taking possession of this horse trailer I understand that I will assume full responsibility for it. I understand that it is my responsibility to furnish a towing vehicle of sufficient size (Trailer weighs 2,700lbs empty; it is rated for 4,500 gross weight) and with necessary components such as a strong towing receiver, drop hitch, electrical wiring (7 way), towing ball (2 5/16″), etc. to safely tow this horse trailer. (Note at bottom any components rented from White Creek Farm.)
I will not tow the Trailer through or under any structure without sufficient overhead or side clearance. I will not use the Trailer to transport dangerous, hazardous, illegal material, or living persons. I will not allow anyone other than myself to tow or use the Trailer.
Owner is not responsible for any of the contents of the Trailer, including but not limited to horses, persons, tack, tie downs. Owner will not provide any tack needed to properly secure my horse, tack, and/or any other contents while inside or outside of the trailer. It is my responsibility to provide and properly use all tie downs and tack necessary while in or out of the Trailer. It is my responsibility to know how to properly secure my horse or any other contents while in or out of the rented horse trailer.
All conditions apply regardless if the trailer is moving or at a standstill. All conditions apply regardless if the Trailer is attached or detached to my or any other vehicle.
Rental, Indemnity and Warranties:
This is a contract of lease only and not of sale. I agree that I have leased the trailer herein described upon the express condition that it will at all times remain the property of the Owner. Owner may repossess the Trailer at my expense without notice to me, if the Trailer is abandoned or used in violation of law or this Agreement. I agree to indemnify Owner, defend Owner, and hold Owner harmless from all claims, liability, costs and attorney fees Owner incurs resulting from, or arising out of, this rental and my use of the Trailer. Owner makes no warranties, express, implied or apparent, regarding the Trailer, no warranty of merchantability and no warranty that the Trailer is fit for a particular purpose.
Condition and Return of Trailer:
I have examined the Trailer and found it to be in good condition. I will return the Trailer to Owner on the date and time specified in this Agreement, and in the same condition that I received it, except for ordinary wear. Service to the Trailer or replacement of parts or accessories during the rental must have Owner’s prior approval. I will not alter the Trailer by placing signs, lettering or painting on the Trailer.
Responsibility for Damage or Loss; Reporting to Police:
I am responsible for all damages to, loss or theft of the Trailer, including damage caused by weather, road conditions and acts of nature, whether or not I am at fault. I am responsible for the cost of repair or the actual retail cash value of the Trailer if it is not repairable or the Owner elects not to repair it (The Trailer is valued at $11,500). I am also responsible for any missing equipment and a reasonable charge to cover any administrative expenses connected with any damage claim. I will report all accidents involving the Trailer to Owner and the police within 24 hours of occurrence.
