Volunteer Information

Volunteers are the life blood of the sport. This sport could not exist without the support of many many volunteers (both horsey and non-horsey).

The ride needs volunteers of all skills in order to operate. Please reach out via the Volunteer Form and we can find something interesting and fun for you.

CLOTHES

Plan for very hot days so bring shorts or cool pants, a hat, sunblock, light colors and breathable fabrics. Wear comfortable and supportive shoes (close toed is good, steel toe is better). If you have a watch with a second hand on it, definitely bring it. If you have a great stethoscope, bring that too.

CAMP GEAR

Cowboy Camp is a primitive site. That means toilets are available, but there is no running water or showers. You will want somewhere to sleep (car or tent). Bring a sleeping bag, pillow, and some baby wipes to clean up. A chair is always nice to have. If you need any help with the gear side of things, let ride management know and we will help as best we can.
