    2015 AERC National Championship Ride

    Calling all Volunteers!!

    The AERC National Championships are being hosted by the OD this year for the third time in our history. We are looking for volunteers to help with pulse taking, scribing, helping at the away vet checks, trail marking, etc. We will have a million volunteer opportunities available, plus the need for qualified riders as Drag Riders for the two divisions - 50 mile and 100 miles. Please note: your equines must be in fit condition for the mountain terrain, and be either shod or booted for this trail.

    We will also have LOTS of other volunteer positions open for this fabulous weekend in October, and the first time ever we will also offer an open LD (not part of the NC). We hope our volunteers will take the opportunity to compete and enjoy this LD. If you would like to volunteer please click the link below to contact the Volunteer Coordinator and count yourself part of the OD and AERC National Championship volunteer experience!

    Entries are now online for the 2015 AERC National Championships! Please see the NC page on this website, or click on our Entries link in the menu to the left.

    The OD is hosting the 2015 AERC National Championships 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 NC rides per AERC guidelines. Qualification information can be found on the AERC website.

    NOTE: Because the AERC NC ride is taking place in the time slot that we normally hold our fall ride, we will NOT be holding our 2 day Fort Valley ride in 2015. It will return in the fall of 2016. The third leg of the OD Triple Crown will be the "Ride between the Rivers" endurance ride on August 1

    WOW!!! There will be an Open LD ride during the 2015 NC!!!!!

    The OD management is pleased to offer an AERC Sanctioned Open Limited Distance ride on Friday, October 9th! The LD ride will be on the day between the 50 mile Championship ride on the 8th, and the 100 mile Championship on the 10th. No qualifications are required, but we would LOVE it if you would find the time to volunteer for either the 50, the 100, or both championships. Bring your horse to camp, help out at the NC, and enjoy a day of LD competition all at the same time! What could be more fun!!!

    The entry form for the LD is online via the Entries link in the menu to the left. Also if you want to toss your hat in the volunteer arena, please click our online volunteer form (on the Volunteer Page).

    THANK YOU to all who can volunteer at this fabulous AERC 50 and 100 mile National Championships in October.
