VERDA was formed in the 1970's as VECTRA, by a group of Vermont distance riders and drivers who organized a couple of Competitive Trail Rides. One of the first was the January Thaw, a 25 mile ride and drive that still takes place Mid January in South Woodstock Vermont. Our membership ranges from novices to USET and USEF competitors. You can set your goals to enjoy a 15 to 25 mile CTR, conquer a multi day 50, 60 or 100 miler or ride your own pace fast or slow in endurance. The sports motto is “To Finish is to Win”. Our coveted award is “Best Condition” and High Mileage Horse. Read more about VERDA's purpose and mission here.
