Volunteer Nation: 4 Events In Search of Help This Weekend

Andrea Baxter’s Indy 500 surveys beautiful Twin Rivers. Come volunteer this weekend and see the updates for the upcoming CCI4*-L for yourself!

It’s time to go eventing again! Eventers are packing their trailers and hitting the road this weekend, which means we’ve got four events that could use some helping hands if you have a couple to spare.

Here on the West coast, Twin Rivers opens its season with a robust event running divisions from Introductory through Advanced. The volunteer coordinating team at Twin Rivers has been hard at work on an incentive and rewards program of their own aimed at thanking the tireless core of volunteers who help keep the event running seamlessly. The program runs with support from Sunsprite Warmbloods and was created to memorialize one of eventing’s finest representatives, Donald Trotter, who passed away in 2019.

This year, volunteers working at Twin Rivers can earn entries into a raffle drawing for a range of prizes including an entry to a Twin Rivers event, stabling at the event, cross country schooling certificates, and even a pack of passes to the famous San Diego Zoo or San Diego Zoo Safari Park. Did we mention Twin Rivers is located in the heart of Paso Robles, California — also known far and wide for its wineries? It’s a win for everyone!

As Twin Rivers gears up for its inaugural CCI4*-L event, running April 9-12, many upgrades to the already-stunning facility are well underway. Be sure to follow Twin Rivers Ranch on Facebook to see the latest updates — or better yet, go volunteer and see the updates for yourself!
