Join our Crew
We have a wide range of individuals who get involved with our events - some want to gain voluntary work for schemes such as DofE or UCAS Applications. Others want to make new friends or learn more about competitions to benefit their own riding. Whatever you want to gain out of it, we have plenty of roles on offer.
Volunteers Are Awesome!
Without the help of a small but dedicated team of volunteers, equestrian events and competitions would struggle to offer such a fantastic experience all round.
Applications for voluntary roles are open all year round - All volunteers are fed and receive vouchers for entries or arena hires. Training is offered for all participants during the show environment
and team wear such as polo shirts and hoodies are available.
A role best suited to those who stand out from the crowd - do you have a strong voice, a good sense of direction? This might be the role for you. We are always looking for new members to join out dressage crew - the role of a caller is accessible to those with a range of equine experiences and has proven as a great route to understanding the format of dressage competition.
Do you have lots of energy? Enjoy making new friends? This is Our most popular role which generally suits teenagers and young adults. Involving course building, pole picking and radio communication this a great way to build teamwork and communication skills and is how most start volunteering with us.
Writer / Judge Assistant
Perfect for those who want to gain an understanding of what judges look for - this role is generally offered to those who have past experience within the industry, such as competition or events experience due to the knowledge required (rules, terminology, etc), although training is always available
Often placed on sections such as carpark or declaration duty volunteers in these sections range from having extensive to very little equine experience. This role primarily requires liaising between competitors and the show team. It's a great way to foster customer service skills or network with those within the industry.
