Equest, located in Dallas, has officially begun construction of a new state-of-the-art arena funded by the late businessman and philanthropist, Al Hill, Jr.

Dignitaries gathered at the Texas Horse Park for a groundbreaking ceremony on September 12 to celebrate the Al Hill, Jr. Family Arena.

Equest CEO Lili Kellogg said, “There are over 800,000 people in Dallas living with a disability. Equest’s equine facilitated programs have proven to be a unique and effective way to provide hope and healing through the human horse connection for those with disabilities and challenges. With the much-needed arena, we will be able to help more people.”

Equest resides at Texas Horse Park, a city-owned 304-acre site located in the heart of the Great Trinity Forest in Southern Dallas. Equest at Texas Horse Park currently has 38 stalls, a covered arena, an outdoor arena, and 6,000-square feet of administration and therapy space. publishes every week.
