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.
Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.
Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea. The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”
The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean. The tide has washed them up onto the beach and they can’t return to the sea by themselves,” the youth replied. “When the sun gets high, they will die, unless I throw them back into the water.”

It is so hard to believe that it is already march. I wantd to take a moment and thank everyone who has supported and is supporting VRA and our mission. We have some exciting things going to happen in 2020, but we really need your continued support to make this possible.............
