Volunteer Nation: These 5 Events Need Help This Weekend

From the the Marlborough Horse Trials Facebook page: “Getting our volunteers started young! Big th anks to these pony clubbers (and more) for helping with jump painting today! We ❤️our volunteers!”

Time to firm up those weekend plans, EN! One of my favorite experiences volunteering came a few years ago when I got to work in dressage warm-up for the first time. I love watching riders warm up as it is, and this provided an awesome opportunity to really soak it all in while doing a small part to help keep things running smoothly.

One of the best things about volunteering is that there are so many different aspects of event organization and execution that you could almost always try something new and learn about a new part of the sport. So get out there, do your part, and learn something this weekend. Here are five events that need some extra hands in the next few days:
