Volunteers are an important part of running a Horse Trials!

Join the fun and excitement of Eventing! You don’t need to be an eventer, or even a rider to volunteer.  Come and learn about the sport, make some friends, and spend a day with us at Valinor.

All Volunteers will receive a Valinor Farm Volunteer Tee Shirt.
Those volunteering for 4 hours or more will also receive a lunch voucher.
Please email robyn@valinorfarm.com if you can help with any of the jobs listed here. Thank You!
