Believe it to not...Spring is just around the corner, and so is our first ODEEO ride of the 2019 season: The No Frills 30/30/55/55 and Ride & Tie.
The ride will once again be hosted in the Thomas Jefferson and George Washington National Forest lands in north-central Virginia
along the border of West Virginia on April 19th & 20th. We will be uploading all the ride details in February, so now is the time to start thinking of getting yourself and your horse ready for this great season opener.
We can pretty much guarantee "interesting" weather (take your pick from any of our four seasons!), challenging yet doable trails,
breathtaking scenery, and lots of fun for an entire weekend. Do one day or both, mix and match your distances, and come spend the weekend with your horse, and friends, in one of the prettiest areas of Virginia.
ALL ODEEO rides are sanctioned with AERC, ECTRA, SERA, and (new for 2019) OAATS. AERC rules are primary, ODEEO specific rules are secondary. All other organization rules are subordinate.
2019 Spring Endurance Clinic
May 4-5, 2019
To be held at 412 Copperhead Lane, Winchester, VA 22602
The ODEEO is hosting this welcoming clinic designed exclusively for those who are interested in the sport of endurance, but want a
chance to "try it out" in a relaxed, non-stressful venue.
This will be a less structured and more informal affair than our fall clinics, an opportunity to camp with your horse, practice riding endurance-style trails, and pick the brains of experienced endurance riders. It will also be an appropriate venue for introducing a new or young horse to camping, strange horses, and unfamiliar trails in a relaxed, non-competitive setting.
Participants will arrive Saturday morning and set up camp. Volunteers will be available to assist you with this if you're new to horse-camping. Once you're set up, you can check out examples of endurance tack and equipment, practice the vetting procedure, ride the approximately 5 miles of marked trails (with or without an experienced mentor), and snoop around other peoples' campsites to see what creative ideas you can copy! We hope to have someone available to give a tutorial on trailer parking (backing up, leveling, etc.). In the evening we will have a potluck supper and maybe a campfire (if weather permits).
Sunday morning you can pack up and leave right away if you've learned everything you need to know, but we hope that you'll stay and go out for another ride! We'll probably have some new volunteers who couldn't come on Saturday with more and different knowledge to share.
