For the benefit of horses

Wilton equestrian artist Gini Frank Fischer, left, is joined by Lynn Coakley, president of the EQUUS Foundation. Ms. Fischer presented a signed gicleé print of one of her oil portraits for the silent auction during the EQUUS Foundation Benefit Luncheon and Grand Prix on Saturday, June 21. Held at the Fairfield County Hunt Club in Westport, it is the only national horse show in Fairfield County open to the public free of charge. The EQUUS Foundation has awarded nearly $2.5 million in grants to equine charities that are reducing the unwanted horse population, retraining horses for multiple careers, and making equine therapy available to more people.
