Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center is nestled on 15 acres in Loxahatchee and uses the healing power of horses to help disabled clients conquer challenges, gain independence and achieve a higher quality of life.

Vinceremos itself means “to overcome” or “to conquer” in Latin and it sure has come a long way since its founder, Ruth Menor, started the idea in the backyard of a friend’s home with one client and one horse. Today the non-profit has over a dozen horses, a 24-stall “Da Amici” barn, and a 45,000 SF covered arena. The facility was made possible largely through the generosity of donors.

Volunteers are also an essential part of the organization and help in a variety of areas including horse care and barn chores, supporting lessons, assisting with office work and more. Our REAL Leaders were lucky enough to have volunteered here a few years ago and a new group was so happy to be able to assist again. On Friday, May 17th our volunteers assisted with barn chores and facility maintenance. They left with full hearts and the satisfaction of a morning well-spent.
