Volunteer with Wanaka Trail Ride

Wanaka Trail Ride 2019

March 30th, 2019
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!
