Important Update about Operation Free Ride Rodeo

Never has Victory Riding Academy’s (VRA) mission of supporting our hometown heroes and their families been more relevant.  But the current public health crisis has necessitated our annual event, Operate Free Rides Rodeo to be postponed until the spring.
As our new facility allows for year-round sessions, we will continue to offer equine activities for scheduled individuals and small groups.  
We will be sending out a email and posting on our social media sites reservation slots for Miltiary, Police, Fire, First Responders and their families.  
So please stay tuned.

Volunteer of the month
Congratulations Caitlyn. Well deserved, thank you for all you do!  She started with us as volunteer and stepped up to become the assistant volunteer coordinator.
Caitlyn also is one of the owners of Trygg, a Norwegian Fjord who stays at VRA.  She is always working hard and finding ways to show the volunteers how much they are appreciated.  
We were able to hijack the awarding of the volunteer of the month from her as she normally is the one who helps choose who it will be and presents the trophy.  

Check out the video of us catching her off guard.  Thank you Caitlyn for all you do and we appreciate all the hard work and the extra mile you go to make VRA what it is today.
