The Old Dominion Equestrian Endurance Organization hosts three AERC sanctioned endurance rides
(50 to 100 miles) and Limited Distance rides
(25 to 35 miles) each year, plus Ride and Tie competition. Our rides
are sanctioned by AERC, ECTRA, Ride and Tie, and SERA. AERC rules and regulations
are primary in our all our rides. All other sanctioning associations rules are secondary to AERC and ODEEO rules

NOTE: ALL equine entries in all our rides, without exception,
are to be wearing four shoes, or the equivalent of hoof protection
which include boots or glue-ons, at the start of the ride.
PLEASE NOTE It is strongly suggested you glue on your boots because
the mountain trails on which our endurance competition takes place are exceptionally difficult on boots. It is your choice to use strap-ons, but please don't say we didn't warn you!
All competitors and their crews are advised to please review
the most current AERC Rules (found on the aerc.org website), especially if competing for the 1st time
