The Potomac Valley Dressage Association (PVDA) held its Fourth Annual Ride for Life Show, a licensed dressage horse show for the benefit of the Johns Hopkins Breast Cancer Center on June 30 and July 1, 2007 at the Prince George's Equestrian Center in Upper Marlborough, MD. This year's PVDA Ride for Life raised $45,000 for the JHBCC, a 50% increase from 2006. More than 60% of that amount came from rider pledges. Additional funds were raised during the Saturday evening Dancing Horse Challenge. Two new features that helped raise additional funds were the general public $10 donation for admission to the Dancing Horse Challenge and the fun "Bribe the Judge". The audience "bribed" the judge with donations to JHBCC to help their favorite rider win. Kudos to all the competitors who raised pledges, generous donors, and great sponsors who helped make this effort so successful! The PVDA is the second oldest dressage club in the United States. Founded in 1964 in Gaithersburg, MD, PVDA promotes the art and sport of dressage by providing leadership, education, scholarships and competitions for its 1200+ members.
