THE MORVEN PARK FALL HORSE TRIALS ARE ON OCTOBER 2-4 THIS YEAR!
We appreciate your work as a volunteer! Without informed volunteers we cannot offer the quality event that everyone has come to expect at Morven Park.
We need help at dressage, cross country, and show jump this year. Please consider joining us for one, two, or all three days.
Protecting the health and safety of our competitors and volunteers is of paramount importance to us. Everyone on the grounds will be expected to comply with local and USEA regulations put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Be prepared to observe standard protocols such as wearing a mask and practicing social distancing.
Moven will provide all assigned volunteers with lunches, drinks, and snacks as well as a choice of pass (see below). We also offer the chance to win wonderful prizes!
For all volunteers the organizers are offering:
CROSS COUNTRY SCHOOLING PASS when all courses (except Advanced) are open
OR a XC school on the Wimert Cross Country Course (Beginner Novice and Novice)
OR a free ring school including indoor arenas.
OR a pass for the Morven Park Mansion
For schooling or ring use, you must call ahead and schedule your time and date with the Morven Park Office at 703-777-2890.
Tentative Open Cross Country Schooling Day - Tuesday after the event (all competition courses open)
Items to remember for cross country judges:
Please NO dogs on the cross country course. The organizers ask that you please leave your furry friends at home.
For scheduling purposes we do need all names ahead of time. Please sign up through the eventingvolunteers.com portal. (Contact Amy Geyer if you need assistance.)
As necessary, we may assign multiple judges to certain fences. Please don't ask to move to a different jump or to have others assigned with you to move. There is a method to our madness!!
Jump judges must be 16 years of age. Younger children wanting to volunteer need to be accompanied by an adult.
Lunches will be provided to assigned volunteers only (max of 2 jump judges at each cross country jump).
Please bring a chair, suitable clothing, and a stop watch or a cell phone with a stopwatch app. (Don't forget to charge your phone!)
This time of year it maybe a little brisk or damp out; please be prepared to handle a variety of weather conditions. The event will go rain or shine.
Vehicles are allowed on course. (Four wheel drive is recommended.)
PLEASE NOTIFY US OF ANY CHANGE IN YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION! Most communication will be through this portal.
Additional information, any schedule changes, and updated briefing times will be sent out the the week prior to the event.
