Are you worried that you are going to get run over, fall in a hole, get ticks? You are probably not going to get run over unless you jump in front of a horse, and for the rest of your concerns you need to exercise good judgment and be alert. Safety is our primary concern. We need volunteers to help us make sure that everything is organized, and no one is put in a position of risk.
Our competitors, horses, equipment and especially our volunteers are important to us and we want no accidents, and nobody inconvenienced. You will never be asked to do anything that will put you in a situation of risk. It is never a volunteer’s responsibility to control a horse. You are there to be eyes and ears, and depending on the job assignment write down information – like times, routes, respiration, faults and penalties.
