Volunteer Nation: Nine Events That Could Use Your Help This Weekend

Here at EN, we are all huge fans (and several of us graduates!) of the United States Pony Club. Not only does the organization play an integral role in developing young people into capable and conscientious horsemen and horsewomen, several clubs and regions organize USEA horse trials — such as this weekend’s Fox River Valley Pony Club H.T. in Illinois and Midsouth Pony Club H.T. in Kentucky, and Seneca Valley Pony Club H.T. in Maryland last weekend.

If Pony Club helped shape your own riding career, consider paying it forward with some volunteer time. Clubs are largely volunteer run, so contact your local chapter to find out how you can help! Or, sign up to help out at one of their horse trials; USPC-run or otherwise, they can always use a hand. Here are nine horse trials that need YOU 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.
