The Importance of Giving Back | Eventing Nation – Three-Day Eventing News, Results, Videos, and Commentary

The AECs are coming! The AECs are coming! Replace this with absolutely any event on the calendar. The countdown clock is ticking. Riders are preparing. Vendors are purchasing, and organizers are, well, organizing. And the volunteer coordinators, well they are sweating. OK. OK.

Check out this article below from Eventing Nation. I 100% agree with this. Without volunteers, events do not run. End of story. Without volunteering, I would not have met some amazing people, that I am lucky enough to now call friends. There is no bad thing about rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in. Organising committees are often under the pump and appreciate any help you can offer. Seriously. I challenge every single competitor out there to join a committee, offer to jump on a sub committee or head over to the organisers tent at an event you may or may not be riding at and offer your services at least once a season. You will feel good about it, and you will help to ensure that your favourite events keep running!
