failure to follow rules; cheating; and abusing a horse. I understand that the HKPC does not own or operate any Riding Centre Facility or Business and members are also subject to the rules and regulations of the Riding Centres whose facilities we use.

Should my membership be terminated or forfeited for any reason, I understand that there will be no refund of membership dues.
Participation in any HKPC activity constitutes a release to be photographed and/or videotaped. Said photographs and/or videotapes may be posted, published or broadcast at the discretion of HKPC.
