Sign up to Volunteer!
After over twenty years, Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy is preparing to start off 2019 in our newly built indoor arena: 140500 S. 14th St., Gering, NE 69341. We are so incredibly excited to be able to assist more of the area’s children and adults with special needs as well as our nation’s veterans! Because we are transitioning from a two-month summer program to a twelve-month all year program, we are making several changes to our registration and payment processes in order to efficiently transition and operate!
During the fiscal year, Buckboard will be offering five different eight-week seasons, beginning Monday, March 25, 2019. Riding times will be available for school-age children from approximately 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm and for non school-age children and homeschooled children from approximately 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm. Other times are available upon request only. Thus, we are in need of a good crew of volunteers to help our riders! Please call us at 308-631-3740 to discuss times you are available to volunteer. We ask that once you select days and times to volunteer, you maintain the commitment to those specified times and call us twenty-four hours in advance to let us know when you are unable to make it or would like to switch days or times.
Volunteering for these incredible children and adults with special needs is fun, easy, and rewarding; furthermore, volunteer work is also fantastic to put on resumes and job and scholarship applications!
If you are still interested in volunteering for us, we will need a completed registration form from you, which can either be requested from Buckboard by calling 308-631-3740 or printed from the file below . The registration can be sent to us at the following address: Buckboard Therapeutic Riding Academy 270388 CR U Gering, NE 69341. Feel free to tell your friends and family over the age of fourteen about this opportunity as we will need as much help as we can get! Also, mark your calendars for our volunteer training at our new arena: 140500 S. 14th St. Gering, NE 69341, on March 16 from 9-12!
