Welcome to our WDRA event page!
Why are these events WDRA only? Because they somehow don’t qualify to be AERC sanctioned events. This is usually because they were not approved within the sanctioning window, or an unnecessary or unattainable document could not be produced, or because the mileage does not meet their requirements, or because the ride must be limited entry, (and history has shown us, that limited entry rides are unacceptable to many AERC members.)
WDRA rules apply to these events, it is your responsibility to know these rules before entering or attending a WDRA event. There are not that many rules, so you have no excuse for not reading them. They are posted below. For more information about WDRA visit the WDRA website at www.WDRA.net there is also a link to become a member.
***YOU MUST BE A WDRA MEMBER TO ATTEND A WDRA EVENT, for liability reasons there are no “day riders” allowed.***
All WDRA-only events hosted by SoCo Endurance are self-registration. If you have not registered yourself correctly, you are not entered in the event. Each rider is responsible for their actions and decisions arriving to, during, and departing these events, it is not SoCo Endurance’s responsibility to “police” it’s riders on any terms, from the welfare of their horses, to their own health and safety.
