Work Exchange/ Volunteers

Work Exchange helpers (formerly known as volunteers) are needed.  Help us during set-up, consignor drop off or pick-up, the sale, or tear down and get to shop early!

* In order to keep commissions low and to provide a quality consignment sale for fellow equestrians, the help of Work Exchange Helpers is needed and appreciated.

*There is no minimum or maximum age for helpers.  If you love horses and tack, please consider volunteering.  Even if you need to sit most of the shift, we could use your help.

* Time slots are available on a first come, first serve basis.  In order to shop early, you will need to work a minimum of 8 hours.  Please choose (2) four hour time slots on our sign up form.  You can either choose to work them consecutively (ie 10am-6pm Saturday) or divided between 2 time periods (ie- Friday morning for 4 hours & Sunday evening for 4 hours)

*If you are needing to work a entire 8 hour shift on a single day and only one 4 hour time slot is still available for sign-up, please contact us & we can discuss adding another time slot.

*Any work exchange helper that agrees to help and benefits from shopping early is expected to fulfill their obligation unless there is an emergency.  In the event that a work exchange helper doesn't fulfill their time slot, they will not be allowed to sign-up to help and shop early in any future Equestrian Exchange sales.

*Work Exchange Helpers must sign in and sign out on days helping to keep track of hours given to the Equestrian Exchange sale.

*Please bring whatever you want to eat-lunch, packed meal, snacks, drinks.   Also, keep valuables in your car during your shift.  During the Raleigh sale, wear light clothing since the building can be hot (though we will be providing air cooling systems this year!).  

*4-H groups or any other types of organizations are encouraged to help.  A great way to learn about different tack & styles of riding!

*Help is especially needed for sorting (Monday night & all day & night Tuesday)  We use this time to sort items to get them ready for consignors to pick-up.

Help us and benefit by shopping early!  Get the best deals on tack  & equestrian supplies!
