Volunteers willing to help at our show will be treated like royalty. We can't do this without all your help. As a volunteer you earn “Dressage Dollars” - vouchers which you may use at the concession, at the vendor booths or as a discount voucher for any specific IDEA expense! Please contact volunteer coordinator Robin Tomasi if you have any questions or would like to help out at this wonderful horse show. Through the years we have been able to donate $20,000 total to the Idaho Horse Park and an average of $5,000-$6,000 to IDEA show rebate and clinic assistance programs, thanks to our generous sponsors and competitors. Be a part of it!
