A partnership has been formed between Equustria Development, Inc., and the Helen Woodward Animal Center. Equustria is a San Diego production company that will premier Valitar, a traveling show of 45 horses and 25 performers. The show will launch at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on November 16, 2012.
A portion of each ticket sold will be donated to Helen Woodward’s Equine and Large Animal Hospital as well as their Therapeutic Riding Program.
Mark Remley, President of Equustria, shared, “We are honored to partner with Helen Woodward Animal Center in support of the incredible work they do for the San Diego community. Helen Woodward does so much for horses, animals and our community, and we are thrilled to be able to give back to such a wonderful cause.”
The Helen Woodward Animal Center was founded in 1972 in the Rancho Santa Fe area of California. It is a private, non-profit organization that provides services for over 57,000 people and thousands of animals each year through a variety of programs.
The center is not an animal shelter. As a result, they turn away from the notion of “dog pound” are instead a center for community needs that helps the community’s animals, its people, and educates its children.
“We are thrilled to partner with the folks from Valitar on their San Diego world premiere,” said Renee Resko, Vice President of Development for Helen Woodward Animal Center. “Their generosity will make a significant contribution to our efforts to assist animals in the San Diego community including our equine population.”

Valitar tickets are $39 for a child general admission and $65 for adults, along with a VIP option. More information about the world premiere in San Diego may be ascertained at www.ticketmaster.com.
