Volunteers Needed for the In-crowd

Have you ever watched a major international competition, wondering what it would be like to be a true insider, so near the action that you could reach out and touch it?  Would you like to like to learn more about an FEI discipline?   If so, consider volunteering for one or more of the discipline test events to be held throughout the upcoming year at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

While there will be a great need for general volunteers at all events, the volunteers for the WEG 2010 competitions themselves will  be required to have prior experience. One way to acquire a good bit of discipline experience is by volunteering at a test event.

There are literally thousands of volunteer positions to be filled, both general volunteers and discipline experienced.  From crowd control to parking services, score keepers and runners to timers and jump judges.  You can help mark, then break down the Endurance course or work with  the veterinary staff as they make sure the competition horses are safe and sound. You could improve your riding skills by learning as you write -- scribing for a dressage judge.

So get your equine fix while broadening your experience. Consider spending a day or two helping out at the Kentucky Horse Park! It just may make you a part of the WEG in-crowd!
