Special Notes to Intro competitors

You must use the USEA Entry Form.
For the Intro level, check the "test" box.
Intro riders are exempt from USEA membership and horse registration.
Intro entries do not have to pay the USEA Starter fee.

Volunteers are the backbone of any horse trials. If you have a date, organizer, etc but no volunteers you can't possibly run the show.

Volunteers do most everything. They are the jump judges, dressage scribes, score runners, starters, timers, scorers, bit checkers, stewards, etc., etc.

Take a look at the video Kim McGann produced to show off the volunteers from our Fall Horse Trials.
