Volunteers Needed for Nation’s Largest Equestrian Triathlon

By Beacon Staff

Last summer The Event at Rebecca Farm set new records for its annual equestrian triathlon. By adjusting the schedule, organizers were able to maximize capacity and accommodate all competitors who wanted to enter. 560 equestrians competed in the Horse Trials and 45 young and future event horses were also featured.

“It’s only because of the incredible volunteer base that we are able to run an event of this scale,” said Sarah Broussard, organizer. “Hundreds of volunteers are needed to run an event of this caliber and we hope to see some new faces for this fun and rewarding experience.”

The 13th annual Event at Rebecca Farm springs into action July 24-27 featuring competition in dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. Prior to The Event on July 23, the USEA Young and Future Event Horse Series will be featured and volunteers are needed for this as well.

During the four days of competition, thousands of spectators come to see some of the finest riders in the nation, as well as promising young competitors who test their skills and courage in Rebecca Farm’s first class arenas and on the vast cross-country course. Admission is free, with full concessions and trade fair all four days.

Volunteers can work as scribes, jump judges, traffic and crowd control, or even paint jumps. Lunch, t-shirts and the opportunity to be close to the action are some of the benefits to this fun opportunity. To sign up as a volunteer, please use the online form at www.RebeccaFarm.org or call (406) 253-1862.
