ODS Bucks
To reward volunteerism (without our volunteers, we cannot put on our shows!), ODS offers "ODS Bucks."  For each hour worked, a volunteer earns 3 ODS Bucks, which may be applied to clinic fees, show entries, or participation in Year End Awards.  See our full policy below for a complete explanation of our ODS Bucks policies.

Year End Awards
Our members are eligible to participate in our Year End Awards program, culminating in our annual awards banquet in December.  We offer prizes for Schooling Show and Recognized Show divisions for both horse and rider.  To participate, you must be a member of ODS before scores are earned.


Our membership year is December 1-November 30.  Membership in ODS provides the opportunity to participate in our Year End Awards Program, our Youth and Adult Scholarship programs, and our educational events throughout the year, as well as providing eligibility for USDF rider awards.  For additional benefits, see USDF Group Member Benefits.
