ErrDocument 403 does not work

I have the attached code in .htaccess
However, if someone from outside the IP range 96.10.*.* accesses the site, it shows him/her the standard forbidden error message rather than the load.shtml file!

How to fix this?

<Limit GET POST PUT>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from 96.10.*.*
</Limit>

AddHandler cgi-script .pl .py .jsp .asp .sh .cgi
Options -ExecCGI

# disable directory browsing
Options All -Indexes

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_METHOD} ^(TRACE|TRACK)
RewriteRule .* - [F]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} system [NC,OR]
RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} wget [NC]
RewriteRule .* - [F]

ErrorDocument 403 /errors/load.shtml
ErrorDocument 401 /errors/load.shtml

Is there a chance that the ErrorDocument statements are being affected by the RewriteCond statements?

Does anything change if you put the ErrorDocument lines right after the RewriteEngine statement and before the first RewriteCond?

The problem was that the deny option was restricted access to all files including the ErrDocument file.  So to resolve this issue, I had to create another .htaccess inside errrors folder and explicitly allow access from all to the file load.shtml

This has resolved the issue
