    Wanna Ride The OD Trail Stress Free??

    The June ride is looking for a corps of qualified riders who would love to ride parts of the OD trail as Drag Riders for any of the three divisions - LD, 50 mile, or 100 miles.

    Come camp with the competitors and prepare to saunter out leisurely after all the riders have raced off, and enjoy spectacular scenery and a great trail. Perfect for the retired, or "too young to compete" endurance horse (and rider).

    We will have a list up soon for the volunteer services of the Drag Riders, as well as other positions that are open still for volunteers. Come be part of the OD experience!

    2015 Ride/Competition Schedule

    Entry forms for the 2015 OD (June ride) are now online! Just click on our Entries link in the menu to go to that page to download the entry in either Word doc form or PDF file.
    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 NC rides. 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.

    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!!!

    We will have the entry form for the LD online in September, but you can already toss your hat in the volunteer arena by using our online volunteer form (on the Volunteer Page) or email Clair Godwin directly by clicking here

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