Our volunteers are critical to the success of the show. If you’d like to be a participant in helping to keep the Annual Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show & Country Fair alive and thriving, please contact us. Any level of assistance is greatly appreciated. Volunteers get free parking, free admission, a 2017 LCHS tee shirt and other goodies when they come and sign in at the Volunteer Tent for their shift.

The Volunteer Chair will give the student a confirmation letter on LCHSA letterhead, please ask about it. LCHSA is a 501(c)(3)
