2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Endurance Volunteers

Welcome to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games

Endurance Volunteer Registration Site!

Volunteering is one of the most satisfying and appreciated efforts anyone can undertake.  Volunteering for our fantastic sport of Endurance here at the Kentucky Horse Park for the main event on September 26, 2010 and the test event October 14, 2009 will be essential so that we can produce the best World Championships ever--- thank you so much in advance for your sacrifice of time and expense.    Only you can make this work!


The State of Kentucky, the Kentucky Horse Park, and the WEG Organizing Committee under the generous sponsorship of Alltech and others are committed to ensuring our participating guests, sponsors and spectators from over 60 countries have the very best experience possible.  Therefore, much is being done on new infrastructure at the KHP and each of the eight discipline managers are busy at work making preparations for their respective venues and in our case the 100 mile course with 6 loops, and one central vet gate at the horse park---Endurance will be so spectacular as the 100 mile course goes through many of the most gorgeous breeding horse farms in the world. Making preparations for staff, judges, vendors, and volunteers is of utmost importance in all plans. 


In Endurance we will need several hundred sport specific volunteers to make sure the event goes incredibly well--- you are the one to help achieve that!  So please enlist now and even though you might only be able to commit to the 2010 main event and not our test event on October 14, 2009--- we want to know you.  Specific job assignments are currently being developed; we will contact you and disseminate this information as time permits.


So come on and join in for a lifetime experience---you’ll meet volunteers from around the world, make new friends, and be an integral part of something that will be talked about for years.  I can’t wait to see your name on the sign up.

You are valued and appreciated---thanks again and good luck in your current horse efforts.
