“We had a Dr. appointment today and Rachel told him one of her favorite things to do is to ride horses. He told her to keep it up! He said next to people who run, people who ride horses have some of the highest lung functions and health!!! Going to figure out a way to get this girl riding more often, and through the winter.” Tiffany LeadersThis was a message we received from a mother who’s 8 year old daughter takes riding lessons with us and has Cystic Fibrosis. Another reason why we need everyone’s support to get the facility built. Your donation will play a huge part in helping us build an indoor riding facility.
Welcome to Victory Riding Academy
Victory Riding Academy’s goal is to provide horsemanship, horseback riding, and therapeutic activities for Veterans, Military, Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, EMT’s, pediatric, critical care, hospice nurses, and anyone with special needs. In addition, our programs are for families who have a family member with special needs or serious illness. We will also offer therapeutic horseback riding and activities for those with special needs which provide many benefits, including improved strength, flexibility, muscle tone, trunk control, improved balance, centered riding, and motor skill development. With a great selection of equine activities we strive to provide wonderful social and emotional benefits to our students including a strong sense of belonging, independence, self confidence, and happiness.
Equine Assisted Therapies are staged with the assistance of an Equine partner where the student rides while coaches called side walkers assist in balance and centering on the horse while a leader guides the horse through a riding pattern. The motion of the horse mimics the human motion of walking then sending signals from the spine to the brain which overtime through series of sessions can repair damaged muscles and or nerve tissues and without the use of drugs.
Whether it’s a five-year-old with Down Syndrome, a 45-year-old recovering from a spinal cord injury, a person recovering from a stroke, research shows that individuals of all ages, who participate, can experience physical and emotional rewards. For individuals with emotional challenges, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem.
