Equest Therapy Horses

Meet our therapy herd of horses. Many are available for sponsorship! By sponsoring an Equest therapy horse, for $5,000 for one year, you will provide the necessary funds to support the yearly cost of his or her care, including feed, shavings, horseshoes, veterinary care, tack and stall management. Equest Horse Sponsors help offset the required costs to keep our horses in the best possible condition for our extraordinary clients.

 

For more information about sponsoring a horse, please visit our suport page, or contact Director of Community Engagement Christine Volkmer at cvolkmer@equest.org or (972) 412-1099, ext. 227.
