Mission Statement

Vinceremos is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving individuals with physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities through therapeutic horseback riding and hippotherapy lessons.

Description

Vinceremos means "to overcome" or "to conquer" in Latin. The horses' gentle nature and rhythmic movement joined with our staff's extensive expertise has helped hundreds of clients conquer challenges associated with their disabilities. VTRC coordinates its services through physician/therapist referrals, group homes, school programs and individual enrollment. Vinceremos staff includes therapeutic riding instructors, our physical therapist, and of course our 24 specially-trained equine partners, selected for their patience, dependability, and rhythmic gaits. This therapeutic medium propels clients to reach goals such as:

  • Strengthening postural control and core balance
  • Improving motor function
  • Increasing ability to concentrate
  • Gaining a greater sense of self-esteem and accomplishment
  • Enhancing communication and social skills

Mastering these goals in VTRC's fun, natural, and nurturing environment, riders gain greater independence and achieve a higher quality of life. The bond that is formed between the clients and our horses often motivates them to continue their equine interest, either as a long-term therapy or as a life long recreational outlet.

Would you recommend Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center?

by Jordan E. (November 8, 2014)
I recommend volunteering at Vinceremos for anyone who wants to work directly with horses. Not only can you work with the horses but you will also have the opportunity to work with the clients. It can be hard work at times but it will be one of the most rewarding.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
