Welcome to the Equestrians Institute Horse Trials

Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) SIGN UP!


Thank you for your interest in volunteering @EIHT at the Horse Park.  EI is proud to be using the USEA Volunteer Incentive Program (VIP) for all our volunteer scheduling.  https://www.eventingvolunteers.com

(***After you are registered, you will be able to go directly to our event here (https://www.eventingvolunteers.com/events/1706/signup)

New users click on "I'm a Volunteer" and create a user name and password. (See below for detailed instructions on Getting Started.)

Returning users click on "I'm a Volunteer" to sign in.  Then click on "Open Events" and search for the current EIHT event.

Volunteering at the EIHT event is a fun and educational way to get up close to all the action!  This year, with Covid restrictions we need volunteers who are already on sight more than ever.  Volunteers are an integral part of this USEA recognized equestrian competition - in fact, we couldn't do it without you! Everyone involved - from Event organizers to judges to competitors - sincerely appreciate the hard work that our dedicated volunteers put in to make the EIHT at the Horse Park a greater success with each passing year.


If you'd like to help but don't have time for a full shift, sign up as a "Floater" and indicate your availability in the "Comments" box.

If you have questions about what the volunteer positions involve, helpful videos can be found here: useventing.com/events-competitions/volunteers/volunteer-videos

Cross Country jump judges need to watch the jump judge video because we will not be congregating for a briefing.
