Our Staff & Volunteers
Without a doubt, the Equestriennes (our volunteers) have been an integral part of the experience that each visitor—and even staff member—receives the moment they walk on our show grounds. From being welcoming ambassadors to fundraising to helping with administrative needs, these incredible volunteers are dedicated to the passion and hard work to ensure the Virginia Horse Center is a success.
We are almost 40 years young and the future looks bright.
The VHCF has many volunteer opportunities which provide proximity to our great events, worthwhile experience, and a fun atmosphere. Our volunteer opportunities are categorized in four areas but we are always looking for great partners of all talents.
- Communications – Ensures all constituents and the community receive information in a timely manner. Tasks may include newsletter assembly, putting up flyers, story research, and writing.
- Good Will Ambassador – Provides walking customer service to visitors/exhibitors during events, improving overall experiences and satisfaction with the facility and staff. Tasks may include stocking brochures, coupon packs, checking TV screen advertisements and taking on-site feedback from visitors.
- Administrative Greeter – Welcomes visitors to the VHCF offices (via walk-in, telephone, or computer) and helps them with requests. Tasks may include routing calls, customer service, and routine office tasks.
- Show Host – Assists with event management during VHCF owned shows. Tasks may include handing out ribbons, polishing trophies, acting as a runner for show managers, providing customer service for participants and their families, and driving people to and from destinations on the property in golf carts
