Equest’s Equine Herd to Crash Virtual Meetings. The non-profit’s latest fundraiser encourages plenty of horsing around through the human-horse ‘cyber’ connection.

In an effort to bring some joy and laughter during this uncertain time, Equest’s therapy horses are joining the corporate life by making cameo appearances on company video conference calls. Customers can reserve 10 minutes live with one of Equest’s 30 therapy horses – miniature or full-sized – or Taco the miniature donkey, for a $50 donation. Money raised helps support Equest’s mission to provide hope and healing to children and adults with special needs through the human-horse connection. To schedule a horse appearance, please call 972.412.1099 with the date and time of the video conference, payment information, and horse preference. Equest’s therapy horses can be found at www.equest.org/horses. Horses are available weekdays, 9am – 5pm, on a limited basis.
