About Us

USDF/USEF Licensed dressage show in Maryland.

The PVDA Ride for Life is both a dressage show  and a benefit for breast cancer quality of life research at the Johns  Hopkins Breast Center. The dressage show is one of five annual USDF/USEF  Licensed (recognized) shows sponsored by the PVDA.


Started in 2004 the Ride for Life has raised over $895,000 for the Johns Hopkins Breast Center. Donations support quality  of life research, patient retreats, and breast surgical oncology  fellowships. The Johns Hopkins Breast Surgery Fellowship is 100%  supported by the PVDA R4L.


We couldn't have this event without a multitude  of dedicated volunteers. Work on the R4L starts after the winter  holidays. Volunteers to help with planning, advertising, fundraising,  organization, and logistics in addition to day of volunteers during the  show are needed.
