According to Equest Women’s Auxiliary President Cara French,
“When Equest Women’s Auxiliary founder Louise Griffeth started the organization 30 years ago, Equest was known as Freedom Ride and many people were unfamiliar with the cause and how to become supporters. The program has changed dramatically over the years. Equest has received national recognition for its work and the Women’s Auxiliary is a very effective organization comprised of hundreds of dedicated women who volunteer selflessly to raise funds for the therapeutic horsemanship.
“Equest has improved the lives of children and adults using horses to bring hope and healing through equine assisted therapies for thirty-seven years. In early 2019, we will reveal details of the annual Equest Women’s Auxiliary Fashion Show and Luncheon in October which will raise much-needed funds for Equest’s unique therapy programs. Highland Park Village is once again the presenting sponsor of the luncheon and fashion show.
“Equest has become the leader in equine assisted therapy and serves hundreds of riders annually including riders with cerebral palsy and autism as well as orthopedic ailments. Additionally, Equest serves veterans through the Horses for Heroes program.
“My wish is that you visit Equest to learn how you can become of a part of this amazing program. You don’t have to wait for the Fashion Show to become join forces with this life-changing organization. Please visit www.equest.org for more information.”
