Thank you for volunteering at LTRA. We appreciate that you have chosen to spend time with us. Before you begin, we need you to know that volunteering on our farm can expose you to personal injury or damage to your property. This waiver outlines our respective rights and responsibilities relating to that risk. Please read this waiver carefully and let us know if you have any questions.
I understand that as a volunteer I will not be paid for my efforts, and that I am at least 16 years of age.
I understand that the activities at LTRA involve serious risks. I may be exposed to, for example: insects; wildlife; farm animals; inclement weather; extreme temperatures; heavy machinery; tools; the actions of employees, volunteers, and other people present on the farm; and dangerous conditions on the land such as holes in the ground or barbed wire. I understand that these examples are not all-inclusive and there may be additional risks. I hereby, waive and release forever, all claims for damages against the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association, its Board of Directors, Instructors, Therapists, Volunteers and Employees for any injuries and/or losses I may sustain while participating at the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association.
I am physically fit to participate in activities at LTRA. I understand that there are no medical services available on site or otherwise, and I give permission to LTRA to authorize emergency medical treatment for me. I release LTRA and its officers, board members, employees and agents, from liability for any injury or damage that might extend from such emergency medical treatment.
I understand that while at LTRA I may have access to confidential information about clients, which must be treated as confidential. All information provided to me by a parent, instructor, or anyone else in relation to a client will be discussed only with the personnel of the Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association. At no time will I discuss any information about clients with other parents or individuals. I recognize that all material and papers pertaining to client care are legal documents and that all information contained therein is confidential.
I consent to authorize the use and reproduction by Lethbridge Therapeutic Riding Association of any and all photographs and any other audio/visual materials taken of me during any volunteer activities for promotional material, educational activities, exhibitions, or for any other benefit of the program.
LTRA requires that volunteers have a Criminal Record Check that includes the Vulnerable Sector Search. Present the support letter you receive from LTRA to the Police department under whose jurisdiction your residence falls under. They will have you complete an application form.
