VOLUNTEERS APPRECIATED

NO MATTER HOW SMALL YOUR EFFORT, EVERY EFFORT COUNTS.

Pencilling or coming along to watch riders, even if you are not competing, is a fantastic way to improve your own test riding and show support to our sponsors and dressage in our region.

If you are able to volunteer in any way - pencilling, helping to organise, setup, pack-up, feeding the masses, cleaning up etc we would love to hear from you.
