Being a volunteer is a great way to watch others competing, get a feel of how dressage competitions run and what makes a good test.
Being a volunteer has so many benefits - give back to the sport, enjoy an equestrian-packed day out, add to your CV, and most importantly - have fun! If you're interested in volunteering with British Dressage, contact your Regional Development Officer for volunteering opportunities in your area:
Regional and technical committees
We have a number of volunteer committees that help support our sport - these comprise of regional committees, where there are different representatives for the key areas, and technical committees, who are selected for their expertise within a particular field to support the relevant area of British Dressage.
Any member of British Dressage can apply to be a part of a regional or technical committee when vacancies are available. All volunteer vacancies will be advertised on our vacancy page.

Recipients may have had a long-term or singularly significant impact on the dressage community and will be, without doubt, a stand out example to others. Key to the award is the undoubted and unequivocal excellence of the nominee.
