Victory Gallop provides three, twelve week sessions each year.
Spring: March – May
Summer: June – Aug
Fall: Sept – Dec
Each session has a theme which allows riders the opportunity to work towards target goals. At the end of each session, there is a Horse Show where riders are placed in small groups and have a chance to demonstrate what they have accomplished during that session. Awards are given to every participant. This is a wonderful experience for each child. They learn about winning and losing, cheer on fellow riders and enjoy the thrill of competition.
Friday Night Activities
Along with the regular lesson program, Victory Gallop also offers other activities for its’ riders. Once a month we host a Friday night “get together” including pool parties, movie nights, bowling, crafts and other events.
We started a new program this past summer offering three, two week, non-riding summer camps. The camps were designed to help the students in our program work on social skills, learning responsibility, team work, respect for others and many other needed daily life skills. Students were able to be at the farm where they feel comfortable with their surroundings while working with other riders and volunteers to accomplish these goals.
Each summer ends with “FUN DAY.” All students and volunteers are invited to partake in this crazy, fun filled day. Activities include bouncers, obstacle courses, crafts, food, face painting and more. It is a great way to end the summer.
Victory Gallop feels everyone deserves to have their special day recognized, so each rider’s birthday is celebrated with a pan of homemade brownies, singing and a birthday card that they receive at their home.
Each winter session ends with Victory Gallop's Holiday Party. Riders, volunteers, staff and their families join together for this festive event. The highlight of the event is when each child and volunteer receive their special gift from the horses at Victory Gallop.
