With the USEF’s current moratorium on spectators extending through June of this year, a great way to get out and see some of your favorite local riders in action and help out the hard-working event organizers is to volunteer. Volunteers continue to be essential to the running of every event, and there are still plenty of opportunities available to help out this weekend.

We’ve compiled some resources on volunteering with COVID-19 regulations in mind. We’ll reference this list each week in Volunteer Nation, so take a few moments to familiarize yourself with what’s new and different.

As always, you can earn merit points when you donate your time through the USEA’s Volunteer Incentive Program. Registering to volunteer through EventingVolunteers.com makes it easy and seamless to both find a job and shift as well as learn what your role will entail.
