Purina Recognizes Dream Rider with a Grant Featured



by Shirley Clukey

Alpine, CA, February, 2011—Dream Rider Equestrian Center, the flagship of equine assisted activities and therapies for breast cancer patients and survivors, is this year’s recipient of funds from Purina Mills’ annual Equine Affaire™ Nicker Maker® Campaign.

 The southern California Purina Mills sales team donated 100% of the profits from their sales of Nicker Maker™ horse treats to Dream Rider. The check for $500.00 will help to provide feed for Dream Rider’s therapy horses.

 “We hope this donation will help your organization continue to provide valuable therapy horses to those in need,” wrote Rebecca Nunes, Southern California District Representative for Purina Mills, in her notification letter to Dream Rider’s founder, Catherine Hand. Besides providing vital support to Dream Rider, the donation also honors the unique rehabilitative work of Dream Rider, in light of the other “hundreds of requests for products and services” also mentioned in the letter.

 Dream Rider Equestrian Therapy is a 501c3 non-profit founded in 2010 and dedicated  to the rehabilitation of breast cancer patients and survivors. Each session of equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) takes place in a private, picturesque, natural setting. Sessions address the whole woman in a holistic approach that respects each client’s dignity.
