What We Do

Victory Riding Academy (VRA) utilizes the healing power of horses to enrich the lives of active duty military, veterans, police, fire, first responders and their families. We help improve the quality of life for students with equine-facilitated activities and help students persevere, overcome and conquer any of life’s challenges. VRA is ran by volunteers, we have no paid staff. Volunteers not only have an opportunity to serve those who serve our great country and communities, work with special needs, but also have the opportunity to learn about horses and horsemanship.

Interesting Info
  • Victory Riding Academy has given over 4,200 horse rides.
  • Operation Free Ride Rodeo is an event for military, first responders and their families to enjoy free horse rides, games, food and entertainment at no charge.
  • VRA is volunteer-run and does not charge for Military and First Responders therapy sessions.
