We welcome individuals and group volunteers to
help at the 2019 Horse Expo!
you volunteer as an individual (must be 16 or older) for a shift of 4 or more
hours, you will receive free admission to the Horse Expo on the day you work.
Members signing up under
a group, organization or saddle club can qualify for payment if the group
volunteers for a minimum of 40 hours/10 shifts total over the Expo event.
Payment is based upon 4-hour shifts, at a rate of $20 per shift. There is
no minimum or maximum number of members who can volunteer as part of a group,
or a maximum number of shifts. Non-adult volunteers aged 12 to 17 can
participate, but there must be one adult supervisor per two under age
volunteers, and volunteers under 16 will only be positioned at the entrance
gates to distribute and pack programs. It is requested that each group have
a primary contact person to contact the Expo volunteer coordinator.
Procedure at Expo

hand stamped for free admission at the Will Call Booth located just outside the
North Gate. Volunteers’ names must be on the Will Call volunteer list to
qualify for free admission. If your name is not on the list, you will not
be allowed the free admission. Paid entry through another Expo gate will not be
reimbursed. All volunteers must then go to the Expo Office (Northwest end of
Coliseum) to sign in, get their Volunteer t-shirt and shift assignment. Children
ages 6 and older may accompany adult volunteers whose job is handing out
programs but must pay admission.
volunteer must sign in at the Expo office prior to their shift AND sign out at
the end of the shift. If the volunteer does not sign out, the hours will
not be credited. Hours must be verified as worked by Expo Staff prior to
payment. Check will be mailed after hours are verified.
