Equest, located in Dallas, announced their annual Boots & Salutes event has again provided funds for their fastest-growing program, Hooves for Heroes which offers equine-assisted activities and therapies to help veterans and their families transition from military to civilian life.

Co-Chairs Carolyn Anderson and Norma Jean Schaltenbrand led the evening of tributes to the men and women who have served their nation.

Veterans and first responders were recognized during the evening and Hooves for Heroes awards were presented to two participants. Marine veteran Derick Garcia received the Pay It Forward Award, and Navy veteran KoCo Powell received the Above and Beyond Award.
