In an effort to spread joy during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Dallas-based Equest wants to help people videobomb their next meeting with some unlikely special guests—their horses.
Equest has made its 30 therapy horses available to make cameos on video conference calls while we’re all at home practicing social distancing. For a $50 donation, companies looking to bring some laughter to employees can reserve 10 minutes live with a miniature or full-sized horse or Equest’s miniature donkey, Taco.
The money will go toward Equest’s mission, which is to “provide hope and healing to children and adults with special needs through the human-horse connection.”
Founded in 1981, Equest brings equine assisted learning, therapies, and counseling to those with physical, cognitive, sensory, coping and learning disabilities. It also helps veterans with adjustment challenges.
A 501 (c) (3) public charity, Equest deploys its volunteers, instructors, therapists, and animals to impact 2,000 lives annually. The equestrian facility, located south of downtown Dallas, is said to be the first therapeutic horsemanship center in the state.
