    CLINIC - Ride and Tie weekend and Horse Camping/Night Riding Practice
    Saturday July 28th and Sunday July 29th
    Location/Time TBA

    The national Ride and Tie association will be holding their fabulous FREE summer clinic this coming July, hosted this year by the ODEEO. Designed for all those who love the run-and-ride sport, and all those wanna-bees who would love the chance to dip their running shoes in the water to try it out, this clinic offers a great opportunity to do a practice event, as well as talks with all kinds of tips and info to make a sanctioned Ride and Tie competition a success. There will also be a barbeque involved, as well as lots of yummy food, and hilarious tales told of past competitions to keep you well entertained the entire weekend.

    Pre-registration is required. We will have more data as the date draws near, so stay tuned and plan to spend a fun weekend with other runners, horses, and some awesome mountain trails.

    Coming in the Fall 2018

    CLINIC - Endurance Riding 101
    September 29th. Location/time TBA

    The ODEEO is hosting this welcoming FREE 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 - what to expect with overnight camping 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 being 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.
