Victoria Davies

Victoria is an Australian Paralympian that is ranked 9th in the FEI world rankings 2021 for Grade II Para Equestrian and has spent over 30 years of dedication promoting the PRE and Lusitano at the highest level. Victoria and her husband Michael run Tora V PRE & Lusitano Stud which is home to their beautiful stallions, mares and much loved dogs! September 2021 Victoria and her buckskin Lusitano stallion Celere represented Australia at the Tokyo Paralympic Games where they certainly left their mark on the world.

Victoria was diagnosed with Rheumatoid which she describes the effects as “severe destruction” to her body, with some 42 operations, multiple joint replacements, fusions, scarred organs, nerve and spinal cord damage. In 2016, she was forced to withdraw from the Paralympic European Qualifiers after being diagnosed with a neck condition called ‘Basilar Invagination’, in which her neck collapsed, pushing her spine into the base of her skull.

This setback and knowing the potential risks involved if she continues to ride has not deterred Victoria, who continues to train each day, compete and inspiring others to hold onto their dreams and supporting others who reach out to her.
Vic loves travelling and competing but says her favourite thing is to spend time with her husband Michael and their horses at their Stud on the NSW South Coast.
