CALLING ALL SUPERHEROES!

Ridefest is our annual fundraiser created by our clients and volunteers for the benefit of our amazing Equest horses.

Save the date for Saturday, October 19, 2019!

NEW THIS YEAR - Instructor Teams

This year we are asking all participants (clients, volunteers, donors) to join a SUPERHERO TEAM led by an Equest instructor. If you’d like to support a client who is fundraising, you can make a donation to that client’s fundraising efforts by visiting that client’s fundraising page directly or by searching for the client’s page via the team page.

Awards will be given for the top client and volunteer fundraisers, but only one SUPERHERO INSTRUCTOR can claim bragging rights for the coming year… Who will it be?

Questions? Please contact ridefest@equest.org or call Christine at (972) 412-1099, ext. 227.

Additional documents

 

We ask you to support the effort by joining a SUPERHERO INSTRUCTOR fundraising team. Your team will reach out to family, friends, and members of the community, and share with them your experience at Equest. By doing this, we raise awareness of our programs, and funds for our wonderful therapy horses. Without fundraising, we could not continue to change lives in our community.

Fundraising officially starts Wednesday, August 14, 2019!
