Animals can play a crucial role in the development of children and adults with disabilities. Here in North Texas, children have literally taken their first steps or spoken their first words thanks to a horse.

"Equest" is a non-profit organization that pairs children and adults with therapy horses. The organization is holding a gala to help raise money.

News 8's Brian Glenn met up with Equest Development Manager Erin Ray to talk about the organization.

The 'Hats and Horses: A Texas Derby Day Soiree' will be held Saturday, May 3 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Southfork Ranch in Parker. Go here for more information.
