COVID-19 Updates


Greetings from Equest!


Equest is committed to making the safety of its employees, members, and guests an utmost priority. All COVID-19 safety measures and protocols based on CDC and the City of Dallas are being followed.

As we continue to monitor the recommendations of the CDC and the City of Dallas, we have made the following decisions about upcoming programs and events:



In consideration for the health and safety of our clients, volunteers, and staff, we are carefully offering limited programming, including therapeutic riding, hippotherapy (O.T./ P.T.), equine assisted learning, and counseling this year. Equest’s mental health counselors are currently providing in-person and tele-health counseling to clients. Please follow all CDC guidelines including mask and hand washing protocols, and social distancing.
