Rosario Dawson: From Tenement to Tinseltown

Special Offer

How Horses Provide HIV/AIDS Therapy

Dawson first learned of the healing power of horseback riding through her friend Chloe D, who is the founder of the Equi-Aid Project, a Manhattan-based riding program that specifically targets children who are infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS as well as other at-risk youth. "The kids we work with often have no control in their homes," explains Chloe. "Riding allows them to actually have some power." For information on both Pony Power and Equi-Aid, go to www.ponypowernj.com; for information on Housing Works, go to www.housingworks.org.
