ODS Bucks
​ODS offers "ODS Bucks" as a reward for our dedicated volunteers who make our shows possible!  For each hour worked, a volunteer earns three ODS Bucks, which may be applied to membership, clinic fees, show entries, or participation in Year End Awards.  See our full policy below for a complete explanation of the ODS Bucks program.

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.

For 2020 only, in recognition of fewer showing opportunities due to COVID-19, ODS has reduced requirements for participation in our Year End Awards program. This year, we require three scores from two judges at one or more shows for each horse/rider combination to qualify.  All other requirements apply, as outlined in our Year End Awards Requirements detailed below. Schooling show series recognized by ODS for our Year End Awards in 2020 are: Happily Ever After, MODA, and South Wind Stables.
