What is the Victory Gallop?
The Victory Gallop is Thorncroft's signature event of the year. Now in its 35th year, this event is one of Philadelphia's favorite philanthropic events. Chaired by Gus and Kristin Meyer of Malvern, Pennsylvania, this year's Victory Gallop is a must-attend black-tie evening held in the historic Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia. More than 400 guests will gather for a dinner, dancing and a toast of celebration to Thorncroft's past, present and future.
We invite you to join our celebration of Golden Hearts Lead the Way: 50 Years of Horses Healing Humans, which acknowledges the unique and transformative power that our horses give to all who encounter them.
Who Benefits From the Victory Gallop?
Established in 1969, Thorncroft is one of the oldest Therapeutic Equestrian Centers in the United States. Thorncroft specializes in therapeutic horseback riding for both children and adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. We provide an environment of love and respect, which allows true healing and growth to occur.
Thorncroft serves 350 students per week. This year alone, the Farm gave out $75,000 in scholarship to students who, due to financial constraints, were unable to afford the therapy offered at Thorncroft.
