Now in its sixth year, the PVDA Ride for Life is both a licensed dressage show and a benefit fundraiser for The Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation Breast Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The 2008 PVDA Ride for Life raised over $80,000 for the center. Dressage Today magazine will sponsor the show in 2009 for the third year in a row.
The show is held at the Prince George's Equestrian Center in Upper Marlboro, Maryland., outside of Washington, D.C. and hosts over 200 competing horses. For more information about the PVDA Ride for Life, visit www.pvdarideforlife.org.
