Whenever we organise an event, we need a large number of helpers.  We are dependent on our parents, friends and connections to provide that help as without it the events simply cannot happen.

Competitions planned for 2017

  • Triathlon – 18 February
  • Hunter/Eventer Trial – 23 April
  • Mini Hunter/Eventer Trial – 30 April
  • Tetrathlon – 29/30 April
  • Junior ODE – 21 May
  • Senior ODE –18 June
  • Novice Show– 17 September
  • Team SJ – 8 October

The more people who volunteer as helpers, the less the onus falls on the faithful few, so please put your name forward to help in some capacity.  Don’t underestimate yourself– we desperately need people to do a wide range of jobs and you don’t need to be an expert – you just need to be willing!

We will give you any instruction/training you may need so don’t worry if you think you haven’t a clue – we can help!  Quite apart from anything else, helping at events is good fun, sociable and gets you away from the daily humdrum for a while!

The following gives you an idea of the sort of help we need:-

  •   Catering for helpers
  •   Fence Judging
  •   Stewarding
  •   Tack checking
  •   Lorry park stewards
  •   Score collectors (mounted, quad bikers, runners, etc)
  •   Scorers
  •   Show-jumping arena party
  •   Commentators
  •   Putting up show-jumps
  •   Flagging cross-country course
  •   Maintenance of equipment
  •   Storage and transport of equipment
  •   Providing/coordinating entertainment at Camp and other functions
  •   Tetrathlon running, shooting and swimming stewards
  •   Dressage writers
  •   Taking round refreshments –  etc. etc. etc.

We do also often need some professional help at some of our events, i.e. doctor, vet, farrier, paramedic, etc. so again, please let us know if you would be prepared to help in a professional capacity.

We know you are all busy, but these events are being organised for your children and WE REALLY DO NEED YOU so PLEASE find a bit of time to give the faithful few some help.

Please complete and return the form below or otherwise contact any of the Event organisers who will be listed on our schedules or any of the people listed on the contacts page.
