Volunteer Nation: These Events Need Your Help This Weekend

It’s time to check out volunteering opportunities once again. Spectators may be limited from most events, so volunteering comes with an additional perk this year: having the option to take in top quality riding no matter where you are. To that end, volunteers are that much more crucial this season since there are already a smaller number of people on the grounds to pull from. Here’s a look at where you can help this weekend.

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.
