We welcome individuals and group volunteers to help at the 2019 Horse Expo!
When 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.

Volunteer Procedure at Expo

Volunteers should enter through the North Gate (behind the horse barn) after getting their 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.

Each 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.

Online Volunteer Signup

*New* this year is an online signup tool where volunteers can specify a volunteer role and a work shift, with automated email confirmation and reminders just prior to Expo time.
