Old Dominion Member Notices

Sign up for Championships!

Championships entry process has changed, each member must register and pay individually, after the RS/VRS has indicated their eligibility.  Deadline for registration is July 1 at noon. No late entries will be accepted.

The RS/VRS will then form teams from those who register. Teams will be assigned based on qualifying scores. 

Status of eligibility by discipline:

  • Quiz: Eligibility information is entered
  • Games: Eligibility information is entered
  • Dressage: Eligibility information is entered
  • Eventing: Eligibility information will be entered individually when the required 2nd HT information is received by the VRS. If you plan on using a schooling HT as your 2nd HT, let me know, as I must first get approval from USPC for that particular HT.
  • Show Jumping: Eligibility information is entered
  • Stable managers (all disciplines): If you meet age/rating requirements, you are automatically listed as eligible. 

***Exceptions must be submitted by the RS/VRS. If you would like to request an Exception, please contact Karen Childers, VRS, as soon as possible so we can collect supporting documentation and start the process.

2 Upper Level Preps Offered in February

C1 and up members, there are 2 Upper Level Preps coming up in our region. One is the Mounted Prep originally scheduled for January 13, but moved to February 16 due to weather. Even if you didn't sign up for the first one, you can sign up for the rescheduled date. Additionally, the full-day unmounted HB/HA prep will be on February 9,  at the same time as the Regional Council Meeting. Both preps are at the Virginia Horse Center. Go to the Forms > Clinics page for registration forms. Remember that ODRPC requires members to participate in a prep appropriate for the testing level before attempting a national level certification.
