A horsebacking riding lesson for Alisha who loves animals

Posted Jun 5, 2017
Alisha loves horses and with this semi-private horseback riding lesson she will get to learn all about horses. Not only does she get to ride one and have a 1 on 1 instructor helping her, she will get to help saddle the horse and take care of the pre and post riding care for the horse. The whole experience will be 2 hours long (riding for 1 hour and 1 hour of care). The Somewhere Farm is located in Eastampton, NJ. This will broaden her knowledge of larger animals and further her options for possible careers in the future. It will also give her confidence in yet another activity she can successfully do and build her sense of accomplishment. Alisha will be so very excited to be able to do this.

Learn More About Alisha

Alisha is 17 years old and lives in Oaklyn, NJ

Alisha is a high school student who lacks confidence and self-esteem. We look for ways to provide her with opportunities that build up these things for her. Showing her she’s good at something she never believed she would be puts the biggest smile on her face. She does not have many friends her age and finds comfort in her family, her mentor relationship, and animals. She has siblings that she barely sees and her parents are her best friends. She has been having a tough time at school this year and will have to repeat a grade. She has one of the biggest hearts, she cares so much about people s and she loves to take care of animals. Alisha is a high school student who flourishes through music. She plays guitar, loves to sing, and finds much joy listening to her favorite artists like Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, and Demi Lovato.

Mari grants the wish for Alisha! Thanks Mari.

Hi Alisha! I hope you close your eyes and breathe deep and enjoy the wind in your hair. I had someone point out to me recently, the literal translation of come to your senses—literally coming back to our senses and rooting ourselves in our breath and the present. I hope her advice helps you as much as it's helped me. Stay strong, stay proud, and #ShineOn <3
