EI Driving Volunteers

Volunteers Needed for Equestrians Institute Combined Driving Event

This event is an American Driving Society recognized Combined Driving Event - EI Driving's largest event of the year. This year's CDE will be extra special since it's our first one at Donida Farm Equestrian Center in Auburn, WA.  Our goal, with your help, is to showcase the EI CDE as highest quality and most friendly.  And you, our treasured volunteers, set the tone!

We love our volunteers and we love to spoil you with all sorts of snack foods, a delicious lunch, and, of course, our 2019 t-shirt. We have special provisions for our three-day volunteers, including Saturday dinner and extra comfortable parking/camping.   Volunteering is a fabulous way to learn the sport. We're thrilled to see some of our loyal volunteers now as competitors in this event.  

Through SignUpGenius you get to choose which volunteer position(s) you would like to claim for yourself.  We will try hard to honor your preferences.  Sign up early to get your preferred positions.

Please join us to help make this event special.  When we say we couldn't do this without you, we really mean it!  If you have any questions, call or e-mail either Mary Decher or Ann Davis.
