Dear Volunteers,

The MORVEN PARK SPRING HORSE TRIALS are on March 30th and 31st this year. Come out to beautiful Morven Park and help us kick off the eventing season with one of the premier horse trials of spring!

We sincerely appreciate your help. Without informed volunteers we cannot offer the quality event that everyone has come to expect at Morven Park. We need assistance at dressage and cross country; come volunteer for one or both days of the event.

In addition to providing snacks, drinks, and lunches for all volunteers, the organizers are offering:

A 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)

Please update your contact information in the portal. Additional information, confirmation of briefing times, and any updates to the schedule will be sent out the week prior to the event. We are always glad to add new friends to our volunteer list, so keep those names and email addresses coming! Please don't hesitate to email questions to the volunteer coordinator through the portal or call or text Amy Geyer at 703-864-5977.   

Reminders for cross country judges:

Please do not bring dogs or other furry friends on course with you. 

Jump judges must be 16 years of age. Younger children wanting to volunteer need to be accompanied by an adult.

This time of year it may be 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 bring a chair, suitable clothing, and a stop watch or a cell phone with a stopwatch app. (Don't forget to charge your phone!)

Lunches will be provided to assigned volunteers only (max of 2 jump judges at each cross country jump). All other friends, relatives, and children are welcome, but they will need to bring their own snacks, drinks, and lunches.  

          Thanks again for being such awesome friends to Morven Park and the sport of eventing. We look forward to seeing you all in March!
