An exciting and unique opportunity to volunteer in the horse industry is coming up in Gainesville, Texas! On May 21-23, 2021 the Southwest Liberty Horse Club will be hosting a face-to-face Liberty Horse Competition. This event is an approved competition through the International Liberty Horse Association. That we know of, this will be the second in-person event of its kind, and the first of its kind in Texas. For this event, we will be looking for horse savvy volunteers who can take responsibility, handle direction, and offer a smiling face to our show participants to assist us in operating gates, setting the arena, scribing for our judges, operating the warm up pens, and more!
