Volunteer Nation: Four Events That Could Use a Helping Hand This Weekend

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! This weekend’s first MDHT Starter Horse Trial of 2022 is getting into the spirit. Word to the wise: wear green or risk being pinched!

The event is still in need of a few volunteers — two jump judges and a show jumping scribe for Sunday, and if those get filled we bet they could still find a way to put you to work. Loch Moy always treats its volunteers well; those who work a full day receive their choice of a schooling pass OR a raffle ticket — pick between a 2022 Maryland 5* 2nd Tier Event package for two (four days, including hospitality) Oct. 13-16 OR $1,000, your choice. Dressage volunteers ALSO receive a bonus incentive of a dressage entry to any show that has a Dressage Only option, as well as an entry for an upcoming dressage clinic (TBA) at Loch Moy. Thanks for all your volunteer appreciation, Loch Moy!

Here are four events that could us a helping hand this weekend. 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.
