Volunteer Nation: These Events Need Assistance This Weekend

Our shows don’t happen without our FABULOUS volunteers! We appreciate all of you!

Posted by Genesee Valley Riding and Driving Club on Sunday, October 4, 2020

Volunteering offers a chance to give back to the sport we love while also spending time with our fellow riders and maybe even learning something new. It can certainly be a thankless job, so it’s helpful to remember to take a moment to thank a volunteer for their time if you’re competing this weekend. This sport is built on volunteer power, it’s important not to forget that!

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.
