    Congratulations to all our TRIPLE CROWN winners for 2014!
    Click here for the 2014 Triple Crown results.

    If this great award has yet to be hallmarked in your riding achievements, then make 2015 as your goal to add you and your horse's names to the Triple Crown list! This year the No Frills, The OD (June), and the Ride Between The Rivers will be our three rides for the OD Triple Crown. You don't have to sign up anywhere, or put down any money, do a tap dance, or jump through any flaming hoops. Just simply ride each of the three designed rides, and finish with a placing, and we'll tally your miles at the end of the season. For those that need a bit more structured info than this one sentence, we have kindly listed "qualifications" on the Awards Page. You will also find the list of winners back' to 1998 (when we started keeping those records for posterity).

    2015 Ride/Competition Schedule
    • No Frills is April 25th and 26th, 2015
    • The Old Dominion is June 13th, 2015
    • The OD is hosting the 2015 AERC National Championship! The rides will be held on October 8 (50 Mile divisions) and October 10 (100 Mile divisions). Please note: You MUST be an AERC member, and MUST have qualified for the rides. Qualification information can be found on the AERC website. Because this ride is taking place in the time slot that we normally hold our fall ride, we will NOT be holding the Fort Valley ride in 2015. It will return in the fall of 2016.
