CLINIC - Endurance Riding 101

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 clinic involves all the fun aspects of being a competitor at an Endurance ride - tips on the best way to overnight camp with your horse, learning what is involved with the vet checks and vetting procedure, how to ride the trail and understanding what the ribbons overhead on the trees mean, foods to bring for you and your horse, and so much more. We will have talks, tips, and important info to share as you enjoy the day of distance education with your horse and fellow enthusiasts.

Pre-registration is required. We will have more information uploaded to this page by at least one month prior to the event.
