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.

Students who need Community Service hours for school, church, youth group, scouts or other such commitment can easily gain service hours by helping out over Labor Day Weekend. The Volunteer Chair will give the student a confirmation letter on LCHSA letterhead, please ask about it. LCHSA is a 501(c)(3)
