as a condition of enjoying the benefits offered by Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club Management Company, Inc., (“SBPRC”) as a member, guest, spectator, sports participant, or otherwise, and entering onto SBPRC Property, the undersigned agrees:
1. Understanding and Assuming Risks. I understand that there are significant risks from entering onto 3300 Via Real, Carpinteria, California, or any property leased or controlled by SBPRC, including but not limited to polo fields, horse tracks, stable areas, swimming pool, spa, gym, showers, dressing rooms, club houses, walkways, exercise equipment, locker rooms, parking lots, stairs, tennis courts, lobby, club houses (collectively, “SBPRC Property”) including risks from Activities that take place on SBPRC Property, and I acknowledge and assume those risks. Such “Activities” include, without limitation, polo, arena polo, horse riding, other horse or equestrian related activities, swimming, tennis, exercising, using any of SBPRC’s services, equipment or any equipment on SBPRC property, weight training, golf cart riding, and any training related to any such Activities, despite whether any of the Activities are supervised or unsupervised or authorized or unauthorized. Further, I understand that engaging in, observing, spectating, or participating in, any Activities (including being in proximity to horses or the sport of polo) involves substantial risks of bodily injury and death, emotional injury, injury to reputation, and other personal injury, to me and to other persons (whether participating in the Activities, observing them, or being in proximity to Activities or their participants) and damage to personal property, from hazards including, without limitation: falls; collision with other participants, horses or objects; being kicked, bucked, or thrown off by horses; hit by mallets, racquets or balls; slipping, falling, drowning; being injured by other participants, onlookers or horses, or by defects in equipment, grounds or facilities, whether the hazards are inherent in the Activity, or caused by the active or passive negligence of SBPRC or its employees, members, contractors, managers, staff, or others. I also understand that some Activities are physically strenuous and that I may be exerting myself, and could be injured or die as a result of Activities resulting from a known or unknown medical condition.

I also understand and agree that under no circumstances whatsoever, existing now or in the future, shall SBPRC have a duty to provide lifeguards or medical support to me or any other person participating in or observing the Activities or at SBPRC Property, including ambulances, doctors, EMTs, defibrillators, urgent care, or any other type of medical support. I understand and agree to this despite such medical support being present, or having been present, or which may be present in the future, for the Activities or at SBPRC Property. If I desire medical support, I will be responsible for providing my own medical support at my own cost and expense. I further understand and agree that any medical support present during, or in connection with, any Activities or otherwise present at SBPRC Property is not provided by SBPRC, but is provided by a third party contractor or other service unrelated to and not connected to SBPRC, for which SBPRC is not responsible.
