Welcome to Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association

Our Mission: To provide a therapeutic horseback riding program for children and adults with disabilities that promotes and enriches their physical, psychological and social well-being.


 The Steeplechase Fundraiser 

Ladies and Gentlemen……they’re off! The Steeplechase Event is in full swing starting the week of April 23rd until May 24th. Riders have been given buttons for their team (Team Danny, Team Cisco, Team Dinah, etc.) that they are encouraged to wear while collecting donations or selling raffle tickets to earn money for their team. The individual rider with the highest donations wins a $250 pre-paid Visa Card and each member of the winning team will receive a VTRA Backpack. For pledge sheets and tickets, please visit the Clubhouse.

 Cuteness Alert!  

Last autumn, for the occasion of our exciting Galloping On Fundraiser, we asked local videographer Daniel Brimacombe to create a new video for VTRA… and the result is fantastic! We premiered the new video on Thursday, November 22nd. Thank you to Daniel for doing such a fantastic job, and to Nate and Dinah, the stars of the video! Watch it on YouTube now.
