    A great big THANK YOU to all who helped, volunteered, drag rode, and competed at the 2 days of 2016 No Frills! Mother Nature did not disappoint in our expectations of the traditional cornicopia of "wacky weather", although she toned it down this year to just intermittent rain (to provide water on the trails, of course!) coupled with cool-ish temps in the morning, and warm sunshine and clear skies in the afternoon to dry everyone..and everything thing..out so nice and tidy.

    As soon as the results are uploaded, we will let you know!

    The OD June ride will be hosting a 75 mile division this year! So if you have a hankering to see a bit more of this great trail than just the same 'ol 50, but don't wanna go the whole hog for 100, come give the 75 a whirl!! You'll be glad you did!!!!!!!!

    Entries are now online on our Entries page!

    Our 2016 Calendar is now online for rides, clinics, and monthly board meetings. Please check it out - we'd love to see everyone at one or all!! We look forward to seeing everyone in 2016 for our Old Dominion Endurance rides!

    Wanna drag?

    We are looking for some great folks to join the OD Drag Riders corps for the 2016 rides. All you need is a horse/pony/equine of any kind that enjoys trails, your hard hat, Neg. coggins, and a yern to see the trail at a relaxed, easy, go-your-own-speed-pace to bring up the rear of the competitors. Come to camp out with your favorite side kick (your Significant Other, your dog(s) - on leashes, of course) and a fun loving agenda. Your horse will be decorated by our capable vet check staff with a special drag riders exclusive "delta sign" on its rump, and you'll be able to go through the vet checks if you want to practice with your horse, and above all have fun on a super trail!

    For more information or to sign up please contact our new Drag Riders Coordinator Duane at martindh@iname.com
