    A true test of one horse, one rider, and the trail:  scenic, spectacular, historic, undeniably difficult, but ultimately a ride that you can complete. The Old Dominion is what the slogan of the American Endurance Ride Conference means: “To Finish is to Win.” A point to point ride known to some as The Beast of the East.

    Held at Base Camp, the Ride & Tie Clinic Weekend is a chance to see what Ride and Tie is all about.  Attend a clinic Saturday afternoon, compete in the dark Saturday night, and try your luck in the daytime Sunday morning.  A full two days of Ride & Tie-ing.
