Equest is coming together. The equine therapy nonprofit plans to sell its facility in Wylie and consolidate its operations this fall at its newer location in the Texas Horse Park.None of this would be possible without a $1.2 million gift from Al Hill Jr. to build a second riding arena for Equest at its newer facility in the Texas Horse Park in south Dallas.
