Drag Rider Clinic this February 16th!! Mark your calendars!!
This just in from Duane, our Drag Rider Coordinator:
Based on positive responses to the Drag Rider clinic last year, we will have another one this year. Date, time, and location are set. All we need is YOUR wish list for what will be covered at the clinic.
The venue will be the same, at TriCounty Feeds in Marshall, VA. It will be indoors (mostly) using their Media Room upstairs. We can have anything in the room we can carry up the stairs or fit in the elevator except for live animals. Last year we used a laptop and projector for a PowerPoint presentation and some small items for show-and-tell. We can do that again, though I would also like to hear some ideas on how to get all the participants doing something. For instance, if no one has a better idea I will bring in a bunch of radios and make everybody go out into the store and talk to each other from a distance. And since I had such a blast drag riding at night for the June ride, I might show how I set up my tack with glow sticks.
But **this is for YOU**, the experienced drag riders and the new drag riders and the new people I have not yet met who are interested and to whom you passed this information and invitation. So send me your ideas and spread the word! I intend for most of the clinic to be lead by some of the experts we have in the area - that means that I want your ideas on speakers. And that means some of you may be called upon to share your wealth of knowledge. So volunteer early!
What: Drag Rider Clinic
When: Saturday, 16 February 2019 from noon to 5pm
Where: TriCounty Feeds, 7408 John Marshall Hwy, Marshall, VA 20115

Believe it to not...Spring is just around the corner, and so is our first ODEEO ride of the 2019 season: The No Frills 30/30/50/50 & Ride & Tie.
The ride will once again be hosted in the Thmoas Jefferson George Washington National Forest lands in north-central Virginia
along the border of West Virginia in April. We will be uploading all the ride details in March, but 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.
