Polo Classic Sponsorship

Please join us as a sponsor at this spectacular venue and become part of our lasting legacy to the community.

Imagine for a minute that you are a ten-year-old child living with cerebral palsy that leaves you in a wheelchair for most of your days. Imagine now that you are about to mount a 1,500lb horse for your weekly therapeutic riding lesson.

For one magical hour each week, you are taller than the world around you, and delight in the motion of the horse beneath you- a motion that closely mimics the human gait. Beyond the experience of joyfulness, your lesson provides a range of physical and social benefits that stay with you throughout your week.

You are invited to make this magic happen by becoming a sponsor of NVTRP’s 9th Annual Ride to Thrive Polo Classic on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Dr. and Mrs. Seager will again host us at their private estate, Chetwood Park, in The Plains, VA.

Please join us as a sponsor at this spectacular venue and become part of our lasting legacy to the community. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, sponsorships are tax deductible, less the value of any tickets redeemed.

Ride to Thrive Sponsorship Levels

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.
