Therefore, we are always on the look out for people to come and steward at our events.  No experience is necessary but it is an outdoor activity which subjects you to all weathers.  An interest in horse sports is an advantage but knowledge of carriage driving is not necessary.

The club will give you lunch, the rest of the team will help keep you entertained. All in all we hope you will have a good day out and then volunteer to come and do it again!

The GWHC run a stewards training day most years - usually in April to make people aware of what is involved.  If you are new to stewarding you will not be left on your own as obstacle stewards operate in teams of 3 to 5 people.

Prior attendance at the training day is useful but not essential.
