To all our 2014 Ride Managers, volunteer staff, and riders: THANK YOU!!!! Once again we were able to offer and host another
outstanding year of OD rides, clinics, and competition by virtue of the hard work and dedication of our AMAZING group of volunteers who are the outstanding and
greatly valued backbone of our organization. Their dedication makes the competition possible, and some even give up their chance to ride
in order to make it possible for others to enjoy the trails that day. So...if you are riding or crewing or even just helping a rider get through their competition next year, make it your goal to
take a second here and there throughout the day and THANK A VOLUNTEER. Guaranteed it will not only brighten their day, it will brighten yours as well. :-)
AND if you'd like to throw your hat into the fun and social Volunteer Corps for a ride (or clinic, or more!) just let us know through our Contact Form.
If you have a preference - like helping at the Vet Check, spotting out on the trail, riding sweep after a division, trail clearing and marking, In/Out Timing, or camp layout -
let us know as well.
Mark your calendars for our 2015 Rides and Clinics!!
On Saturday, Feb 21st, 2015
We are hosting an Endurance 101 (unmounted, indoor) Clinic
TBA. We may also have a "Moving Up in Distance" (aka: "Beyond The Basics") clinic on Sunday if
there's enough interest! So keep your eyes peeled on the website for location/time to be announced in Janaury
2015 Ride/Competition Schedule
No Frills is April 25th and 26th, 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.
