Volunteering at the GAIG
Volunteers are critical to our shows. For each day of our licensed shows, we need almost 200 hours of volunteer time. Most years our volunteer hours add up to over 1,000. We have a lot of dedicated and experienced volunteers who are so appreciated, but we are always looking for more volunteers.
For 2021, sponsorship categories include Class Sponsorship, Signage Branding, Competitor and Volunteer Appreciation, Merchant Award Sponsor, and Advertisement Sponsor. A Vendor Village will be featured that will accommodate many exclusive booths at a nominal fee of $150 regardless of the booth or trailer’s size.
VADA deeply appreciates all who can sponsor and show their support for the sport. Sponsorship ranges from $35 for a Class Sponsor to an Overall High Percentage Awards for $100. For the DAL, VADA offers a number of FEL Level Challenge classes and welcomes sponsors for those prestigious events. Beyond Class Sponsorship, DAL Sponsorship Bundles offer various funding levels and benefits. The Competitor and Volunteer Appreciation Sponsorship is an important area and comprises various sponsor options. Lastly, the Merchant Award Sponsor is an excellent venue for equestrian merchants to donate products and/or gift certificates to be presented to winning competitors.
