The September Starter Horse Trials on Saturday, Sept. 14 is in need of some scribes, stewards and jump judges! Lots of our 'regulars' are riding! Good luck to them!!
If you can help, please email Bodgie at email@example.com. Make sure to include your phone number, email and which job you'd like.
As a thank you, volunteers receive credit for a cross country schooling ($45 value), a free tee shirt, and a nice lunch (with plenty of snacks!).
This is the last horse trials this year - next - The Dutta Corp. Fair Hill International Festival in the Country! Starts Oct. 16th, with the jog. Also on Wednesday, Oct 16, the Future Event Horse East Coast Championships - see the stars of the future! On Thursday, the Young Event Horse East Coast Championships will start, finishing on Friday - more future stars!!
I think one of the best bang-for-the-buck deals in eventing is volunteering especially as a jump judge or scribe. It's like a free personal clinic all day long. Just observing really helps you to see what is good riding and how horses react when ridden well. It is immensely satisfying to go home and apply what you have learned to your own horses even if you don't compete. We are so fortunate, in our area, to have a facility like Fair Hill. Other parts of the country would die for such a great place to train, ride, compete. So if you have not volunteered yet this year, or are sort of thinking of going to watch, why not shoot them an email and volunteer for at least part of the day, it will be definitely to your advantage!
