Ride Above Disability (RAD) is a new therapeutic riding center in Poway (north of San Diego). Jaydn, my five year old daughter with cerebral palsy and cognitive delays, is now riding at the center. She has connected with the instructors, owners, and a four legged friend. With only a few visits to the center so far, we have seen Jaydn overcome fear and follow directions more accurately. We will be working on balance, core strength, and her receptive and expressive language while at RAD.

Therapeutic riding uses equine-oriented activities for the purpose of contributing positively to the cognitive, physical, emotional, and social well being of people with disabilities and emotional issues. RAD substantially discounts their therapy fees for their special needs students which makes it necessary to raise funds to care for the students, horses, and operations.

For my birthday, I'm asking friends and family to consider donating to RAD's scholarship fund so Jaydn, and other kids like her, are able to continue riding. By donating here, the funds (less crowdrise fees) will go directly to supporting Jaydn and other riders. At this time, RAD is registered as a non-profit in California and their 501(c)(3) code status is pending. Crowdrise makes it easy to securely donate; however, if you prefer to donate by check, please contact me at for more information.
