British Evening volunteer

There are multiple roles available at horse trials up and down the country for BE volunteers, ranging from fence judging and stewarding to coordinating the lorry park and litter control. However, don’t expect a four-star gig immediately. Fence judging at Badminton and Burghley is a great honour and takes many years of experience.

How do I apply?
Register with BE as a volunteer, which is free to do. BE membership is not required.

What sort of prior experience is required?
BE provides training (usually in the off season) for the roles of fence judge, scorer, controller, commentator and steward.
