Massachusetts, like many other states, has enacted an Equine Liability Statute known as Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 128 Section 2D. This Statute is intended to protect equine facilities and other equine professionals from being liable as a result of the inherent risks of equine activities. In addition every equine professional shall post and maintain signs which contain the following warning:
Under Massachusetts law, an equine professional is not liable for an injury to, or the death of, a participant in equine activities resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities, pursuant to section 2D of chapter 128 of the General Laws.
