The Old Dominion Trophy
The Old Dominion Trophy is a 100 mile division award given at the Old Dominion 25/50/100 mile ride in June.

The formula for determining a winner is based on a veterinary score, total elapsed time and weight carried. Equine leg protective devices are prohibited during the ride. Horses are judged the morning following the close of the 100 mile ride. You must pre-register for this award. There is no fee.
