Join The Team
Would you like to be a part of the single largest equine event in Michigan? Would you like to earn free admission to this exciting event? You can accomplish all of this by becoming a volunteer at the Michigan Horse Expo! The Michigan Horse Expo, produced by the Michigan Horse Council, is put on by a volunteer staff…and you can become a part of this, working with other horse enthusiasts, and becoming a part of the Expo Team!
All volunteer positions, exciting or not (and most involve working with people, not horses) are vital to the success of the Michigan Horse Expo. Remember, too, that ALL profits from the Michigan Horse Expo go to the Michigan Horse Councils for their programs, including scholarships and grants beneficial to the Michigan horse industry. By being a part of the Expo team, you are also contributing to programs that benefit Michigan horses and horse owners!
To be a volunteer at the Expo, you must commit to a minimum of one four-hour shift over the course of the weekend. This earns you one day’s free admission, and as a thank you, an Expo t-shirt. If desired, you can volunteer for more than one 4-hour shift. If you commit to working a minimum of a four hour shift each of three days, you will receive a weekend pass.
All volunteers are responsible for their own meals, travel expenses and accommodates. Some beverages and snacks will be available in the volunteer lounge area. For those who volunteer eight or more hours per day, special arrangements will be made for meals.
All volunteers will re required to sign a release of liability form at the event, and in the case of a minor child, both parents must sign the release.
All volunteers are asked to please arrive 15 minutes early each day to check in with the Volunteer Coordinator, located in the Michigan Horse Council office in the classroom hallway. This will allow you a few minutes to ask any questions you may have, receive updates that need to be relayed to you, and arrive on time at your work location to relieve the volunteer working the prior shift.
We recommend that you store personal items in your vehicle, as there are no secured areas to secure your valuables (purse, backpack, purchases etc.).
Please be courteous and friendly. Remember that you are representing Michigan Horse Expo. We are grateful for the help of our volunteers, and we depend on your good attitude and kind demeanor to make the weekend a success.
