Officials & Volunteers

We always love welcoming new volunteers to our sport. We welcome everyone from amateurs to experts, and all necessary training is provided.

There are many benefits that come with being a BEDE Events volunteer. We run three activities a year exclusively for our volunteers, with previous activities including yard visits with first-class riders and a tour around the Remount Army depot which houses Kings Troop and Household Cavalry horses. We also have a volunteers-only party, and offer vouchers to helpers to be redeemed against start fees or Cross Country schooling. We also run a volunteers prize draw at each event, one lucky volunteer will be in with a chance to win a bottle of British Eventing Gin, 4 bottles of tonic courtesy of Fevertree and a gorgeous Gin glass, then at the end of year we also put all your entries from the year into one big prize draw and we have had prizes from Hospitality tickets to Badminton to a gorgeous Fairfax and Favor Purse! 

Eventing is a unique sport which we’re extremely passionate about. We’re privileged to host our events at some of the most beautiful sites in the country, and to welcome top quality eventers. To get involved, and join us in bringing our fantastic sport to life, please email or call 01949 829061.

with very many thanks
