Time to strap up your volunteering boots, EN! We have an event on each coast this weekend, both in need of some extra hands. It’s a great time of year to start putting some volunteer hours in the bank for the USEA’s Volunteer Incentive Program. As always, you can also peruse EventingVolunteers.com for opportunities coming up in your area.

This weekend also marks the first Rocking Horse Winter Horse Trials of the season, and you can visit this link or the show office to inquire about volunteer opportunities in Altoona, Florida.
