January 7, 2010

Organisers of the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Kentucky say thousands of volunteers are are still needed to help run this year's 16-day event.

"We need volunteers who can lend their expertise to help make these Games a success, no matter their professional skill level," said Melissa Gamble, volunteer manager for the World Games 2010 Foundation.

"You might work as a ticket-taker, an usher, work at a visitor information desk, or help with transportation or event services, but each is a very important part of how these Games work every day," she said.

Volunteer positions for competition-specific duties are currently being selected, but thousands of general volunteers are still needed.

The Alltech-sponsored Games will be held from September 25 to October 10 at the Kentucky Horse Park.
