Volunteering 

All members are expected to help for at least 1/2 day a year at a club event. This is important for the smooth running of the club.  To ensure the club remains financially viable we are dependent on running a number of events.  Each of which take a degree of work. The Committee work hard to plan these events and so it is wrong that all the work falls on them. They also need time to enjoy riding and club events. 

The jobs are not onerous and you will given clear guidance. For example you may be asked to support an instructor at a clinic, putting up jumps and picking up droppings.  (if you are entering the clinic it may be that you cover the sessions you are not riding in. 

Or you could be asked to join a working part to set up for an event or camp

Or you could be asked to support a committee member with the planning of a special event. 

Contributing towards the running of the club will help you to feel involved, meet new friends and even learn new skills
