SDSU PR video of Alise's Lesson

Written by Catherine Hand

This film is part of a journalism project about Healing With Horses in San Diego, County. Kayla Eide shot and edited  the clip shown here.  The following text accompanies this video:

Alise, a 12-year-old girl with brain damage, has just returned to sessions at Dream Rider Equestrian Therapy after a year in a body cast. She underwent two surgeries and had many of her bones reset in order to reduce mobility problems. Now she's back in the saddle, expanding her mind and body with the help of a pony named Treasure.

On November 5, 2010 Dream Rider received 501(c) 3 approval from the IRS making all contributions tax deductible. The approval letter is posted on the About Us drop down link.

On December 15th, 2010 paypal was added to our donations options, which allows donors to make a direct online contribution which generates a tax deductible receipt stating what the donation is to be used for. The choices can be for client fees for breast cancer or handicapped children whose parents need help paying for their equestrian therapy. Donations can also be made for the maintenance of our two senior therapy horses, who need a special diet and veterinary care. . Help is greatly appreciated to cover these costs.

 On December 16, 2010, an inspiring article was published in the Union Tribune. It was written by Karen Pearlman who wrote eloquently about our Shalom and why he received his new name when he joined us, making the Dream Rider Breast Cancer rehab program a reality. Here is the link to her online article at sign on San Diego.
