Volunteers Still Needed for EB CDS Show August 20 and 21!

We need a few more volunteers to help with the upcoming CDS East Bay chapter shows at La Jolla Equestrian Center on August 20 and 21.   

Volunteers are especially needed at Sunday’s show. 

You can volunteer for a half day or full day, and there are a variety of positions available. We will be providing lunch for full day volunteers, water for all volunteers both days, snacks for everyone, and much appreciation for all the volunteers who help to make our shows possible! 

With every four hours of volunteering, you are eligible for an entry in a drawing for next year’s adult amateur clinic lottery or a drawing for a $150 grant towards the CDS Annual Championships or CDS Northern Junior Championships.

 The positions available include:


  • Ring Steward  – Supervise show rings and warm up areas,  Keep show running on time, by making sure all competitors know their position in the queue and the official show time
  • Concierge – Assist competitors with whatever they may need as they prepare to enter the show ring, including removing leg wraps, handing jackets or water bottles to riders, etc
  • Runner – Collect the test sheet from the judge after each ride and bring it to the show office
  • Score Tabulation – Calculate scores and post them after each class is complete
  • Volunteer/Awards Table – Check in volunteers.   Assist competitors picking up test sheets, ribbons, and awards
  • Trailer/Car parking – Direct cars and trailers so that there is enough space for everyone

If you would like to contribute to your dressage community and help make our East Bay chapter shows possible, please volunteer by contacting Amanda Apesos at 510-289-1436 or [email protected]. You can also sign up by using the volunteer form on our website, www.cdseastbay.org .

We look forward to a great show!
