NW Horse Fair: Demo Riders and Booth Volunteers Needed

February 12th, 2008

ODS is proud to announce that we will again be involved in the dressage presentation at the Northwest Horse Fair and Expo, which is to be held March 28, 29 and 30 in Albany, Oregon.

ODS member Jeremy Steinberg will be the featured dressage clinician this year.  Jeremy is looking for three to four demo riders per day at various levels.  Demo riders have the option of being involved either one, two or all three days.  If you are interested in participating as a demo rider, please e-mail a letter of interest by 2/22 to the ODS Office (  Include the level you are working/showing, details about your horse (age, breed, sex) and a short rider bio.  Demo riders will be provided with admission tickets (one for rider, one for groom) and stabling.

In addition to organizing the demo riders, ODS will also have a booth in the trade fair.  It has been a lot of fun in the past years and it is an unequaled opportunity to share information about dressage.  We need a few volunteers to staff the booth each day.  We are offering a $10 admission pass in exchange for a three to four hour shift in the booth.  Duties are fairly light – handing out brochures, answering questions and selling merchandise.  We will provide on the job training.  Members interested in helping can contact Corinne Stonier in the ODS office ( – please include the day(s) and time(s) you are available.
