Volunteering at our rides
We need you!
Why should I volunteer?
Cromwell EGB Group have a variety of rides and group events every year which would never be possible without volunteers! EnduranceGB members (and their family and friends!) are encouraged to volunteer for a minimum of one event per year.
Helping out at a ride is a great way to meet new people and find out how the rides run without the pressure of taking your horse. We are always eternally grateful for every volunteer!
What do volunteers do?
Each event we run requires volunteers for a range of different roles, there truly is something for everyone!
Our Ride Organisers and Secretaries are all volunteers. They recruit volunteers for a range of tasks including:
Vet writers who help the vets on the day of a ride
Time keepers who start riders off on course
Stewards, such as parking and vetting areas
Check Point stewards and Gate Stewards
Road crossing supervisors
Every single one of our volunteers are invaluable! We make sure you are fed and watered appropriately and volunteering can help you gain access to special awards such as the Cromwell Challenge Series and the Stewards Award, presented at our AGM each year.
How do I volunteer?
The best way to volunteer is to contact the Ride Organiser of the event you choose to help at, alternatively, you could Email Us directly or contact EnduranceGB themselves.
All our rides adhere to strict regulations set out by EnduranceGB and we are committed to providing well run events that everyone can enjoy.
We contact our volunteers in advance of the event, once you've shown an interest, to let you know when and where to come. When you arrive, we will brief you on what we need you to do and how your role works. There is always someone available to ask if you're not sure on the day. Our volunteers are all covered by our event insurance.
