Dream Riders of Kentucky Holds Annual Fundraiser

OWENSBORO, Ky. (9/24/13) – On a slightly chilly September Saturday, a sizeable crowd turned out to support a non-profit at its Fall Jamboree fundraiser.

Dream Riders, located at Bittel Equestrian Center off of Hwy. 60, provides therapeutic horse-back riding services to disabled children and adults in the Daviess County area. It helps adults and children suffering traumatic brain injury, cerebral-palsy, and intellectual disabilities. The horses are a "non-conventional tool for therapy", said Clark. A physical therapist helps to evaluate where the children are in their disability and to determine which horses and equipment are suitable for the riders based on compatibility and skill level.
