I was a volunteer at the Road Runner Dressage Horse Show this year. Last year, I was the photographer. This time I decided that being a volunteer was an easier job.
It was a very hot July, day but the riders and their mounts preformed wonderfully. The show was held at the Pima County Fair Grounds in Tucson, AZ. The classes were in the inside arena out of the sun and heat.
My volunteer job was to check the horses after their classes. I checked that the whips were regulation size. I also checked that the bits were proper and fit well. Another thing to check was that the cavasons weren’t too tight. Lastly, I had to check the spurs.
For the first hour I worked the warm up arena. There I had to notify riders to be ready for their class. I also had to check that horses were treated fairly and not abused. I never saw any abuse. The riders were very kind to their horses.
It was a great day of watching beautiful riders and their gorgeous dressage horses. I was so impressed with how well behaved the horses were. The riders handled their classes and the heat with grace.
I did bring my camera as a couple of participants asked me to take photos of their classes. Those images are listed below along with some candid photos. Photos were taken in the inside arena at the Pima County Fairgrounds and in the warm up arena.
