We’ve all heard over the loudspeaker “we need more volunteers!” Instead of frantically rushing to find last minute volunteers, now there’s an app for that.

Volunteering is a great way to be involved in horse sports, whether you are an active competitor who wants to give back or you are a horse enthusiast who just wants to be involved. Every competitor in eventing must ride a dressage test, and every dressage judge at a horse trials or three-day event is required to have a scribe to write down their comments and scores during each ride so that they can focus on the horse and rider in front of them. That means that there is a great need for volunteers who are capable of scribing. This can be a great way to give back to the sport and get to know what happens in the judge’s booth - but there is a little more to scribing than being able to quickly write things down.
