Ride to Thrive Sponsorship

The “Ride to Thrive Polo Classic” has become a premier Northern Virginia event. We have steadily increased attendance each year and made it the largest annual fundraiser for the Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program. This year we are grateful to once again enjoy the exclusive location at Chetwood Park in The Plains, Virginia. Your sponsorship will help support the operations of NVTRP, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that improves the lives of children and adults with disabilities in the community.
