President’s Message: USDF/ODS COVID-19 Update

ODS Members,

We have received an official announcement from the United States Dressage Federation about its direction regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and how USDF competitions and educational events will be handled at this point.

(Read the USDF official statement here.)

ODS will follow this decision and suspend all ODS Approved Licensed and League shows until April 15th, 2020. At that point, we will update you with the latest determination. Please be advised that any scores earned between March 17-April 15th will not count toward qualifying for ODS and Region 6 Championships or League Show Finals awards. This also applies to the 2020 Licensed and League Horse/Rider awards.

Please note, the USDF Region 6 Youth Education Clinic with George Williams and the Youth Outreach Clinic with Brooke Martz (April 25/26) are canceled. USDF has canceled all educational events until May 22-24 with the intention to reschedule.

We will continue to update you as we receive more news. Please keep yourself and your families safe during this time.

Please call the ODS office at 503-893-5254 or myself at 541-410-5968 if you have any questions.

Lisa Koch
ODS President
