Join the volunteer team at the Wanaka Trail Ride

Interested in being a volunteer at Wanaka Trail Ride 2023?

Like many events in the area, the Wanaka Trail Ride would not be possible without the support of volunteers like you. Each year over 100 roles are filled by an amazing team of dedicated volunteers who enable the ride to run smoothly and safely for everyone taking part. Some roles require technical riding skills and others require no knowledge of trail rides whatsoever!

Depending on the role undertaken, volunteers will have the opportunity to meet new people, develop new skills and we hope will gain huge satisfaction from enabling this event to take place and raise funds for many of the local children at Montessori Children’s House Wanaka and Wanaka Primary School. In addition to putting on a fantastic event and raising money, we strive to make your involvement enjoyable and rewarding and worth giving up your time for!
