2019 League championship



   This year’s League Championship, aka League Finals, brings a new experience for ODS members.  ODS is partnering the League Championship[ with the Oregon Horse Center’s Dressage Festival.  This gives members three ways to show!  Championship classes, ODS League Open classes, and through the OHC Dressage Festival, schooling classes for practically every discipline of dressage.

Organized and Hosted by Umpqua Valley and Mid Valley Chapters of ODS

qualifying requirements:

  1.  Rider must be a current ODS member in good standing when the scores are earned. 
  2. Entries must have earned two qualifying scores (55% or greater); per level, per division and from two different judges at two separate competitions.

  8. Horse/Rider combinations winning ODS League Championship Classes may not compete at that level in future ODS League Championship Classes.

Championship scores will be calculated by averaging the percentages earned in the two tests ridden.

• League Championship classes must be ridden from memory
