Upcoming Volunteering opportunities!
We definitely need more hands on deck, so drop us a line or just show up at any of our events and introduce yourself!
Interlakes Horse Club is a completely volunteer run organization. We ask anyone able and willing to volunteer at events, whether members or non members, to sign up! Your help is greatly appreciated!
IHC adult members are asked to volunteer a minimum of 5 hours through out the year. By volunteering you are ensuring the club and events run to their full potential. Youth members are also encouraged to volunteer.
Volunteer sign up sheets will be available for each event. If volunteer roles are not filled, events will not run to their full potential and may be cancelled.
Event time slots-
Gymkhana- 10:00 to 1:00 approx.
