When you volunteer as an individual (must be 16 or
older) for a shift of 4 or more hours, you will receive free admission to the
Horse Expo on the day you work.
Earn Money for your Club!
If a group (can be a horse-related group but doesn’t need to be) comprised
of 10 people (must be 16 or older) agrees to work a minimum of 40 hours during
Expo, that group will earn $10 per 4 hour shift for their group (every 4 hours
worked = $10, 10 individuals X 40 hours = $100). There is no maximum number
of individuals or hours. There is
no proof of group membership necessary. Spouses, parents or friends of the
group member are welcome to volunteer also. Each volunteer receives
free admission the day they volunteer. It is requested that each
group have a primary contact person to contact the Expo volunteer coordinator. Each
volunteer must check in at the Expo office prior to their shift AND sign out at
the end of the shift. If the
volunteer does not sign out, the hours will not be credited. Hours
must be verified as worked by Expo Staff prior to payment. Check will be mailed
after hours are verified. Some of the positions available are: Set up on
Thursday (free admission will be food for a regular Expo day), Wristbands,
Programs, Merchandise Booth, Coliseum Gates, and Horse Rides -- some backup
leaders and two at the waiver table. As the event draws closer,
there are typically odd positions that are requested from one of the Expo
staff, vendors or clinicians.
Call Missie Schwartz, MN Horse Expo Volunteer Coordinator, at 952-451-9581 or
e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org for available jobs and shifts.
Volunteers should enter through the North Gate after getting their hand stamped
for free admission at the Will Call Booth located just outside the North Gate.
Volunteers’ names must be on the Will Call volunteer list to qualify for free
admission. If your
name is not on the list, you will not be allowed the free admission. Paid entry
through another Expo gate will not be reimbursed. All volunteers must go to the
Expo Office (Northwest end of Coliseum) to get their instructions and to sign
ages 6 and older may accompany adult volunteers whose job is handing out
programs but must pay admission.
