As part of this package it is understood that no other professional photographer shall be allowed to photograph while the hired official photographer is working and that any breech of this agreement will constitute a reason for non-completion of the job with no liability to photographer. Other persons may take photographs at the event, however all shots set up by photographer are for photographer to photograph exclusively. It is the client's responsibility to inform all guests of said policy. This is to ensure that photographs are of a consistently high standard. Photographer cannot be responsible for unusable shots due to distractions from clients or guest's horses, eyes being closed and other circumstances beyond the photographer's control.

If hired by the show as the show photographer this package requires a statement in the show program or rider’s waiver form that states: Attendance at this event, whether as a spectator or participant, gives your consent for photos to be used by the photographer for commercial purposes.
