2020 Riding Seasons
Buckboard will be starting up again, FRIDAY, MARCH 2020! Both riders and volunteers can register at Buckboard's Indoor Arena on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2020, with a volunteer training coming up on MARCH 7!
Please make sure to download a registration and mail it to us, whether for a rider or a volunteer! We are implementing several changes as we transition from strictly a summer program to a program that operates all year, so be watching for the letters and financial information that we just mailed out!
Call us or message us on Facebook if you have any questions!
We Still Need Your Help
We will start riding in our new arena (140500 S. 14th St, Gering, NE) Monday, March 25! Please note that this is only a physical address change and that our mailing address will remain 270388 CR U, Gering, NE).
If you or anyone you know would be willing to help buckboard help the special needs children/adults and veterans of this area, you can donate to Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy's Indoor Arena Project Fund account at either the Scottsbluff or Gering First State Bank!

I SAW A CHILD
I saw a child who couldn't walk,
sit in a horse, laugh and talk.
Then ride it through a field of daisies
and yet he could not walk unaided.
I saw a child, no legs below,
sit on a horse and make it go
through the woods of green
and places he had never been
to sit and stare
except from a chair.
I saw a child who could only crawl
mount a horse and sit up tall.
Put it through degrees of paces
and laugh at the wonder on our faces.
I saw a child born into strife,
take up and hold the reins of life
and that same child, I heard him say,
Thank God for showing me the way...
