Saturday, Feb 21st 2015 - AERC Endurance 101 Clinic:
designed for the beginner and endurance wannabees with lots of fantastic information on how to not only get started in the sport of endurance, but how to succeed from start to finish...and then some!
Sunday, February 22nd 2015 - AERC Beyond The Basics Clinic:
developed for the more seasoned competitor who wants to up their game, this clinic comes loaded with excellent information to help the rider ride smarter, better, more efficiently, be successful in moving up in distance categories, as well as provide care/conditioning tips for that all important member of your team - your horse.
If this great award has yet to be hallmarked in your riding
achievements, then make 2015 as
your goal to add you and your horse's names to the Triple Crown list! This year the No Frills, The OD (June), and the Ride Between The Rivers will be our three rides for the OD Triple Crown. You don't have
to sign up anywhere, or put down any money, do a tap dance, or jump through any flaming hoops. Just simply ride each of the three designed rides, and finish with a placing, and we'll tally your
miles at the end of the season. For those that need a bit more structured info than this one sentence, we have kindly listed "qualifications" on the Awards Page. You will also find the list of winners back'
to 1998 (when we started keeping those records for posterity).
2015 Ride/Competition Schedule
No Frills is April 25th and 26th, 2015
The Old Dominion is June 13th, 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.
