Supporters of Equest, a local charity that provides equine therapy, gathered at the Preston Hollow home of Coley and Jennifer Clark to kick-off the 2015 Equest Premier Celebration at Texas Horse Park, slated for April 25.

Led by chairs Denny and Connie Carreker and honorary chairs Kenny and Lisa Troutt, the April event will unveil Equest’s newest therapeutic horsemanship facility at the Texas Horse Park in Southern Dallas.

Equest was founded in 1981 as the state’s first therapeutic riding program. Each year the nonprofit serves about 300 riders with 38 horses, 11 certified riding instructors and more than 700 volunteers who dedicate over 35,000 hours to the cause. Equest serves children and adults with all types of physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities, as well as U.S. Military veterans and service personnel, and their families.

At the kick-off party, two “mini ambassadors” greeted guests — Cisco and Dare, twin miniature paint horses. Guests included Jeff Byron, Katherine Coker, Guinn and Betsy Crousen, Paul and Tiffany Divis, Mark and Beth Layton, Lynn McBee, and Bill and Lezlie Noble, among many others.
