Volunteer Olympics Team Sign Up Form

Join us on Saturday, September 12th for the HETRA Volunteer Olympics!

The Volunteer Olympics is an exciting five event competition featuring many of the most important jobs our volunteers do at HETRA.  Teams of four will compete in one group event and each team member will compete in one of four individual events.  Team members may only compete in one event for their team, i.e. one person completes leader portion, a different teammate completes tacking and so on.  Each team must have at least one certified horse leader and one certified tacker.  A bonus team member may be added for a total of (5) team members without an entry fee, however the fifth team member must be an instructor assistant, aged 12-13.  A special consideration, as this fifth team member could be extremely beneficial as an extra set of hands during either the arena set-up event, or as a smaller rider for your EQ pusher event! 

All event scores will be combined and awards will be given to the top (3) teams.  Individual events will also be scored, if you would like to enter additional individual events, please fill out this form https://www.tfaforms.com/4845380.
