The season may be winding down, but there will still be ample opportunities to volunteer at the final few events. We’ve got two for you this weekend, one at Grand Oaks, which has added $5000 in prize money for all divisions, and one in Arizona at the Area X championships.

Remember to log those volunteer hours with the USEA Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP), as there are plenty of perks and awards up for grabs at the end of each season. You can check out the Volunteer leaderboard here and find more volunteering opportunities on EventingVolunteers.com.
