There are numerous opportunities available to help out your local event this weekend as the eventing season begins to wake up for the year. Don’t forget, the USEA Volunteer Incentive Program is full of year-end prizes and rewards for dedicated volunteers who spend time helping out. Your help goes a long way!

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.
