Tales from a BE volunteer: show jumping steward

To celebrate Volunteers’ Week (1-7 June 2018), we hear from some key members of the Eventing Family – the volunteers! First up is show jumping steward Simone Cooper.

“I’m show jumping steward and I get all of the competitors’ numbers down on the board and I call them in to make sure the show jumping runs smoothly and we run to time. I most enjoy meeting competitors and their parents – sometimes they are so nervous, but I can have a laugh with them to calm their nerves, which is just great and much appreciated. I love the horses, I love meeting people. I enjoy everything about eventing. If I can give help and support to other members of British Eventing then I’m happy to do it. I just love it. It’s great.”
