The primary responsibility of a Ring Steward is to make sure that the competitors go in the show arena on time and in the correct order.
Understanding the timing of dressage shows is key to being a Ring Steward. Understanding the needs of competitors and their coaches is also important. Being a Ring Steward requires a balance of firm adherance to the rules with compassion for frazzled competitors. This is a wonderful position to get to see the horses and riders as they warm up and compete. Stewards are needed Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
