(Wylie) June 20, 2013 – Equest Therapeutic Horsemanship has an opportunity to win a Gyspy horse to assist North Texas veterans in their transition to civilian life through its Hooves for Heroes program.  This one horse can make a difference in the lives of dozens of veterans who are suffering from PTSD as well as in the lives of their family members.
