About this opportunity
There are options for roles.
1. Arena setup (the afternoon before) and pack up (the end of the competition) are physical jobs involving lifting light plastic arena pieces into and out of a trailer.
2. Scribing notes for dressage judges (called pencilling). Requires sitting in a car with the judge and writing down what the judge says about the horse and rider combination. The higher the level of competition, the faster the comments are made and the faster the penciller needs to record.
3. Scoring assistance. Placing ribbons on test papers, printing results for riders to see, making announcements when classes have been scored and ready for collection, helping riders find their results. Some computer work can be done if it is of interest (the scores are recorded in a spreadsheet).
4. Catering/ hostess. Making judges feel welcome and bring snacks and beverages to the cars where they are judging from. Serve lunch to judges and volunteers. Set table and pack up after lunch. There are usually 3-4 judges at a competition.
