Burgham, Northumberland’s premier equestrian event, could not run without the generous help and time given by our fantastic volunteers. Through their support it has been possible to improve the event year after year, providing a fantastic horse trials for all to enjoy.
An event of this scale takes many months of planning and preparation to ensure that it is delivered to the highest standard. At least 250 volunteers are required over the course of a weekend to allow the event to be run efficiently and safely. A range of help is required in the form of jump judges, dressage stewards, crossing point stewards, show jumping stewards, arena parties, scorers just to name a few. If you are able to assist in any way, we would be delighted to hear from you.
If you haven’t volunteered before, don’t worry. We are a friendly and supportive team and the other volunteers will help you out too! It’s a great way to meet people and make new friends as well as seeing the sport close up. And if you are a competitor it gives you a real insight as to how the sport you love operates on the ground.
You can find more information about volunteering and the different roles on the British Eventing website Volunteering with BE | British Eventing and/or contact us directly at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to hearing from you and thank you in advance for your help and support.
