DRESSAGE VOLUNTEERS BONUS: When Volunteering for dressage, you will ALSO receive 1 dressage only entry to any show (starter or Twilight) that has the Dressage Only option, as well as an entry for an upcoming dressage clinic (Aviva Nebesky on Sept. 3, 2022),  held at Loch Moy Farm. This is IN ADDITION to the above pass and dressage entry.  If you have any requests for clinicians you'd like to see, please text Carolyn at 301-514-0111.

1) Volunteers can use their pass for whatever schooling they would like. Just like a regular pass before it expires.

2) Volunteers get 1 entry for 1 dressage test of choice at a starter, twilight event or Pick your Time/Test Show (9/4/22). Contact Carolyn (301-514-0111) BEFORE closing.  If a volunteer signs up for dressage volunteering 2 or more times, they will receive either 2 dressage tests of choice entries or a Fix A Test entry.

Loch Moy Farm is continuing to use Compete Easy. All entries will be processed for unrecognized events (starters, twilights, PYTs).  Dressage Scribes will be using the scribing system on Compete Easy called LiveScore Dressage (download from your app store). You can practice this at home preferably on a tablet or it may also work on a phone. The XC jump judging and timing app is called Jumping by Nominate Pty Ltd.  You can download this to your phone to practice beforehand. We have a group of videos that will explain how to use everything and is posted on the following link. There are videos already uploaded to the MDHT Loch Moy Farm YouTube channel.

All volunteers, please download the Compete Easy app to your phone. Everyone that enters the property will check in using the "Check In" feature.  Competitors, volunteers, admins, judges and support staff will be doing this in 2022!



*NEW FOR 2022*

If you volunteered 40+ hours in 2021, you will be allowed to transfer your passes to non-family members this year.  Talk to Carolyn for more information when you see her this year!

Our events run rain or shine so please plan on being here no matter what the weather.  If you have any questions before the event, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Gena, at 240-388-2400.  Any questions or concerns on the day of the event, please contact Carolyn at 301-514-0111. 

There will be a volunteer email sent out 2 days prior to each event with arrival times and  other pertinent information.  If you don’t receive an email, please look at the app for announcements or through eventingvolunteers.com (the red bullhorn).

NEW VOLUNTEERS PLEASE NOTE: There is a free eventingvolunteers.com app for both iphones and androids.  The app allows volunteers to see all announcements, check in and check out at each event.  You will be receiving an email or alert advising you to check in on the morning of your event.  You can do that once you arrive at Loch Moy Farm.  You can also check out through the app (or through your email).  If you forget to check in/check out, eventingvolunteers.com will send a reminder email the following day asking you to update your hours.  If you have any problems with this, please contact Gena at 240-388-2400. 

If you, as a volunteer, are mistreated by ANYONE (competitor, official, parent, coach), please call Carolyn immediately. If you witness someone being mistreated, call Carolyn immediately.  We cannot do anything about situations if we are not told during the event.  We love our volunteers and want to make sure that you are treated with the utmost respect. 301-514-0111 


DO YOU RUN/OWN A SMALL BUSINESS??  We'd like to know so that we can market your business to the MDHT/Loch Moy Farm community.  We want to get our competitors engaged with our volunteers and what you all have to offer.  Volunteers support our competitors' passion and love of eventing so it's time for them to give back volunteers.  Please send us an email at [email protected] with a paragraph "blurb" about what you do, along with a photo and we will gladly promote your business through our web site, social media, digital program and mass emails.
