Boots & Salutes

The USO-style tribute fundraiser, Boots & Salutes, was held July 28 at Equest at Texas Horse Park. The first-ever fundraising celebration was an evening filled with tributes and support for those who have served our country.

More than 300 guests were entertained under a covered arena with a live Frank Sinatra-inspired concert by Dave Halston and the Dallas Swing Dance Society.

Six featured therapy horses were also in attendance to represent the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and first responders. The event benefited Equest, a nonprofit that provides equine therapy to promote mental health and wellness for veterans and their families.
