The purpose of 27-1-725 through 27-1-727 is to assist courts and juries in defining the circumstances under which persons
responsible for equines may be found liable for damages to persons harmed in the course
of equine activities. It is the policy of the state of Montana that a person is not liable for damages sustained
by another solely as a result of risks inherent in equine activities if those risks
are or should be reasonably obvious, expected, or necessary to persons engaged in
equine activities. It is the policy of the state of Montana that an equine activity sponsor or equine
professional who is negligent and causes foreseeable injury to a participant bears
responsibility for that injury in accordance with other applicable law.
