Liability Release


I understand that I might be working with severely abused animals and might be assisting in the training or retraining of such animals; that I will be involved in all aspects of animal rescue and the care of rescued animals. I hereby release and hold harmless Olympic Peninsula Equine Network, it’s directors, officers, members, and their heirs, and the owners of any premises where volunteering will take place, from any and all claims, actions, losses, damages, injuries or liability of any nature, including all expenses of litigation, court costs, and attorney’s fees, arising out of, directly or indirectly, my participation in such events or services.

I state that I am of lawful age and legally competent to sign this release, or that I have acquired the written consent of my parents or legal guardian; that I understand the terms are contractual and not mere recitals; and that I have signed this document of my own free act.


The Equine Activity Liability laws of the State of Washington, § RCW 4.24.540 , state among its statutory provisions that “an equine activity sponsor or an equine professional shall not be liable for an injury to or the death of a participant engaged in an equine activity.


Equine Activity is inherently dangerous and equines have: a) the propensity of the animal to behave in ways that may result in injury, harm, or death to persons on or around them; b) the unpredictability of the animal’s reaction to outside stimulation such as sounds, sudden movement, and unfamiliar objects, persons, or other animals; c) collisions with other animals or objects; d) or the potential of a participant to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to injury to the participant or others, such as failing to maintain control over the animal or not acting within his or her ability.. An equine activity sponsor or 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.

Vet Clinic

SEAN TULEY, DVM – Equine, Farm and Ranch Veterinary Services, offered an all day Vet clinic at Olympic View Stables (using their nice, dry and well lit indoor arena) on Sunday Dec 14, 2014.

Over 10 horses (and their owners!) were able to take advantage of these excellent rates so be sure to keep an eye out for future dates as we will be hosting this event again!

See some photo of the event here!

The following services were offered via reservations.

  • Tooth Floating (standard) – $ 100
  • Tooth Floating (with hooks) – $ 150
  • Stallion to Gelding “conversion” a.k.a. castration – $ 200

If you would like to be put on a waiting list for the next offering, please call 360-207-1688 and leave a message stating what you would like to have done. We will let you know we received your message and we’ll give you “a heads up” once the next event is scheduled.

Based on demand,  additional veterinarian services may also be available.

NOTE: There will be a $25 farm call charge added for each animal regardless of the procedure.

So not only will you get a great deal on Vet services, you’ll also have  a chance to stop by and talk with a few of OPEN’s board members. You’ll be able to find out more about what we do, clear up any misconceptions you may have about non-profits and how they spend their money, and then hopefully feel inclined  to help out.

We take your tax deductible donations in just about any form. Cash, checks, money orders, supplies, feed and even items for our next tack sale!

How you can support OPEN

Do good

Did you know that there are numerous ways you can support OPEN financially? We even have one way that wont even cost you any money (see Amazon Smile below)! Here’s a few choices that may work for you.

  • Good old “hard cash”. If you happen to stop by the OPEN facilities and you want to take a little stress off of your wallet or pocket book, feel free to share a little of your green so we can make sure our horses also get a little green as well!
  • Mail us a check for a one time donation or send one monthly to continue your generosity! Our address is at the bottom of this page.
  • PayPal is a wonderful way to donate money to OPEN. You can do a one time donation or set up a monthly allotment using your PayPal account, debit card or credit card.
  • Amazon Smile donates .5% of all qualifying purchases that you make if you designate us as your charity of choice. Currently you’ll need to select “Eyes that Smile” our old name as we don’t have OPEN set up with them yet. Click on the AmazonSmile “Get started” button below to get set up (this will take you away from this page).
  • eBay Giving Works allows you to designate a specific portion (10%, 20% etc.) to your designated charity. There are some steps to take to set it up and you can read about it HERE.
