Judging & Volunteering

Did you know…

…dressage simply couldn’t happen without volunteers?

• The nine Board Directors of British Dressage are voluntary as are all 56 of the regional committee staff.
• At competitions, all scorers, stewards, runners (who collect test sheets from the judges and take them to the secretary’s office), writers (who write down the judge’s comments) and many of the show secretaries do it for the love of the sport.

And, it isn’t just the sport of dressage that benefits when people like you step forward to help – you do too.
