There are plenty of worse ways to spend a beautiful spring day than chilling in the middle of a field watching event horses thunder past. Twin Rivers Spring CCI and H.T. has put out a desperate plea call for volunteers at its event today through Sunday in Paso Robles, California. For every two hours you help out, they’ll give you a $20 certificate which can be used for any facility use fee or Twin Rivers show. Young Riders can also work for their Young Rider hours.

To sign up for positions, as well as check in and out from your phone, visit the new website launched by the USEA and sponsored by Sunsprite Warmbloods, Area VI also now has a volunteer leaderboard to recognize the effort that volunteers put in, with awards to be given out at the end of the year, so set up a profile at today!
