The 2016 Nutrena USEA American Eventing Championships are just around the corner! This year the competition moves to a new location at the beautiful Tryon International Equestrian Center in North Carolina. From the most state of the art cross-country course eventing has ever seen to the endless entertainment provided for competitors and spectators alike, this is going to be one AEC that you don’t want to miss.
So how do you ensure yourself a front row seat to all the action? By signing up as a volunteer!
This year volunteers will receive complimentary meals, a ticket to the Welcome Party on Thursday evening and goodie bags including Tryon and USEA swag as well as various assorted other items from sponsors.
Being a volunteer means you’ll get to be up close and personal with some of the top athletes in our sport. You never know who you may meet volunteering. Top riders like Buck Davidson, Lainey Ashker and Tamra Smith are frequent AEC competitors and with the new location we’re excited to invite even more professionals!
As it’s been said many times before, volunteers are truly the backbone of Eventing. Without our volunteers it would be impossible to keep horse trials running smoothly.
No previous experience with eventing is required. Horse lovers of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome. There’s a job for everyone, even if you’re competing at the AEC, we encourage you to take some time and give back to the sport, so inquire about being a volunteer today!
