My name is Lisa Brandman and I am working on behalf of Rupert Isaacson and the Horse Boy Foundation, www.horseboyfoundation.org, to find donations to the Equine Riding Therapy Program that has been started by Rupert Isaacson, author of the Horse Boy and filmmaker for "Over the Hills and Far Away", a documentary film about his journey across Mongolia with his autistic son Rowan and his wife Kristin. See excerpt below...
The "New Trails" riding program located in Texas is growing and they are in need of tack items for the newly acquired horses and children that have entered into the program.
We are asking for your help with this extraordinary, selfless cause that Rupert and wife Kristin have embarked on, not only for their son Rowan but for all kids with autism and learning disabilities.
All donations can be made through www.horseboyfoundation.org. Let's keep the list of "Thank You's" growing!!
Horse Boy Foundation is a 501 c3 organization. With all donations, a thank you and link to your website will be posted on my website www.customequineworks.com.
Thank You in advance!

When his son Rowan was diagnosed with autism, Rupert Isaacson was devastated, afraid he might never be able to communicate with his child. But when Isaacson, a lifelong horseman, rode their neighbor's horse with Rowan, Rowan improved immeasurably. He was struck with a crazy idea: why not take Rowan to Mongolia, the one place in the world where horses and shamanic healing intersected?
THE HORSE BOY is the dramatic and heartwarming story of that impossible adventure. In Mongolia, the family found undreamed of landscapes and people, unbearable setbacks, and advances beyond their wildest dreams. This is a deeply moving, truly one-of-a-kind story--of a family willing to go to the ends of the earth to help their son, and of a boy learning to connect with the world for the first time.
