What: Equest Gala 2016 kickoff 

Where: Home of Helena and Doug Wall

The 411: It’s not often that party greeters are 3 feet tall with four legs, but such was the case at the kickoff for Equest’s 35th anniversary gala, where mini-horse ambassadors Cisco and Dare were available for plenty of photo opps. But it was fitting considering the cause: Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for children and adults with diverse needs using horses to bring hope and healing through equine assisted activities and therapies.

Guests shopped at the Ocean Point Tack Shop pop-up featuring Kingsland Equestrian apparel while eating delectable bites from Farm to Market Catering. Perhaps most important, attendees had a chance to make plans for this year’s soiree, set for Saturday, May 7, at Texas Horse Park. Expect Southern cuisine and cocktails — including the famous Bourbon & Biscuits Bar — as well as country music under the stars.

Who: Lili Kellogg, Andy Steingasser, Lezlie and Bill Noble, Kelly and Marty Turco, Allane O’Neil, Terri Sue, Jack Wensinger, Dina and Jason Arnott, Trish and Joe Judson, Carrie and Dodd Crutcher, Di Johnston, Frank Carter, Leslie Golden, Darla Ripley, Nancy Natinksy, Kelly Morrison, Lane Cates, Brad McClain, and Meghan Nylin.
